2015 Farm Managers Leadership Series

What's Happening

GPS Dairy Consulting holding its 2013 Dairy Leaders Forum
GPS Dairy Consulting held its 2014 Dairy Leaders Forum—Growing as Better Leaders:

The Issues in Black & White at The Grand Harbor Resort and Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque, IA on November 19-20, 2014. We had a great line-up of speakers and topics, with dairy clients from at least 7 states and Australia in attendance. This intensive, highly interactive meeting allowed dairy owners to network, collaborate and discuss how to squeeze more profits from their dairy operations. Attendees learned how to hone their leadership skills and think like a CEO, improve efficiency, manage risk and control costs in better ways as well as get the most out of their forage operations.

Experience Delivering Success®


Experience only brings value when it is shared. The nutritionists that make up GPS Dairy Consulting are proven leaders in their respective areas with vast experience and a solid reputation for delivering quality service and positive results to their clients. At GPS Dairy Consulting we share our experience with each other as colleagues; we share our experience as coaches and mentors for each other; and, we share our experience with our clients, their managers and their employees. Building upon the experiences of all of us we are able to bring the power of the entire GPS Dairy Consulting team to every dairy we work with.


In order to deliver anything you must first take personal ownership. GPS Dairy Consultants don't simply hand off the many challenges that come up on a dairy operation; we get involved. At GPS Dairy Consulting we take ownership and responsibility to deliver results to ourselves, our peers and especially to our customers.


Success must be sustained and built upon. We will not be satisfied by delivering a single success. At GPS Dairy Consulting our consultants create value by delivering results. We capture the momentum of those results to create success and we build upon each individual success to create sustained success.
