Dairy producers and advisors working with all types, sizes, and breeds of dairy herds are invited to the first of its kind Data and Innovations Summit (DIS) held in conjunction with the National Holstein Convention. The summit will be an in-person (only) event June 30, 2022 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Registration closes June 1, 2022. Register HERE!
The DIS will feature dairy industry leaders who will share how data gleaned from the many innovations used on today’s dairy farms can be better utilized to help maximize efficiency, results and profitability. Attendees will hear key considerations for implementing new technologies or data systems, discussion from data industry leaders who work to utilize multiple data sources, as well as from producers using data innovations.
Come and learn. There’s no doubt, data and technology are a fast-growing part of the dairy industry, and for good reason. The continued pressure to improve, be better, more efficient and/or sustainable—or however you measure success—will continue to challenge and change how the dairy industry operates. An important realization is that data and innovations of all sorts can help meet those opportunities.
The value-packed agenda was built by producers, with all dairy producers in mind—regardless of size, breed, commercial or registered—along with their advisors in the industry. College-age students interested in a future career, farming, or consulting, and/or looking to get a head start for dairy challenge contests, are welcome.
The DIS is truly U.S. dairy producer focused with objectives which include:
- To learn and hear ways to improve utilization and management of existing data on dairies of all sizes, including the potential for data to aide in new decision-making on dairies (from individual cow data to herd-based decisions)
- To foster a learning environment for dairy producers of all sizes to learn about relevant data and technology innovations that are either currently available, or look ahead to meet future dairy producer needs.
- The DIS will provide attendees with many immediate and practical take-homes actions, and thought-provoking ideas from four speakers, two panels, and over a dozen technology spotlights. All for only $25, which includes a hot lunch!
