Leaders Forum: Agenda

Leading your dairy operation has never been more important, or more challenging, with the increased size, technology and labor involved. Your key to success is learning and honing the leadership and technical skills needed to improve efficiency, manage risk, control costs, and lead the people who make up the team at your dairy.

Don’t miss the GPS Dairy Leaders Forum

GPS Dairy Consulting has put together this intensive, highly interactive meeting to allow you to network, collaborate and discuss your challenges with some of the industry’s most respected producers and dairy consultants. After just two days, you’ll head back to the dairy with tools and knowledge to achieve your goals.
