Thanks for joining us this year! On June 11-12th, GPS held our 2021 Herd Manager Retreats in Wisconsin and Iowa. These retreats provided an atmosphere for sharing ideas and best practices among an elite group of herd manager peers at a family-friendly location, and this year was no exception as we were all excited to gather again in-person.

The retreat included networking time, roundtable discussions, presentations on team building, technology and techniques and so much more. We had over 80 managers and their families join us between both locations for a day and a half of learning, sharing and networking. 


Held annually in partnership with Diamond V, our Herd Manager Retreats are designed to provide an atmosphere for sharing ideas and best practices among an elite group of herd manager peers at a family-friendly location. As a team, we understand that family is an important ingredient to your team. Over the past 8 years, professional learning and development in the areas impacting the dairy’s bottom line have included:

  • Transition cow management
  • Foot health
  • People management
  • Feed management
  • Animal welfare
  • Safety and much more.
