“I utilized the Young Professionals Reception as an opportunity to network with industry leaders and young agriculturalists beginning their professional career. I decided to take advantage of this reception, as well as Dairy Summit to further submerge myself around technologies and financial management practices, which take place on many progressive dairy farms. My key takeaway from this event was the versatility of job opportunities and placements, which play an intricate role in our vast and robust industry.”
