Sponsor the Summit & Support Growth-Oriented Dairy Producers:

“I always leave the Summit feeling very inspired and encouraged. It definitely puts wind in my sail to be there with other forward-thinking producers and industry experts. What you learn in the different breakout sessions but also just the networking is great. Sometimes you get in your own bubble on your farm and get tunnel vision, but being able to connect and network with other farmers, I always learn just as much from those conversations in the hallways. There was really good energy and optimism there last year. Lots of really good discussions and conversations that needed to be had.”

– Jared Kurtz, Berks County

“The Dairy Summit was a really great experience. Not only were the speakers great, but so was the interaction with other farmers. Even if we’re milking on different size operations, we could all communicate. I had several conversations about how we’re feeding, and that was the neat part. There were some speakers that were outside my box, but there were still plenty who were valuable for my size dairy. One of last year's keynote speakers gave me the drive to be a better dairy farmer." 

–Jonas Fisher, Lancaster County

In this exclusive podcast, Andy gives us a sneak peek at his Summit session and has an honest conversation with Pennsylvania’s very own Dr. Charlie Gardner – a retired dairy veterinarian who works closely with dairy farm families on finding common ground through succession planning. They describe some challenges they see in family businesses and strategies your team can take to stop being stubborn with each other and start being stubborn with the critical habits that make a farm successful.
