Description

The 2019 National Dairy FARM Evaluator Conference will be held in Denver, Colorado on July 23-24th with optional industry tours on July 25th. Every year the Evaluator Conference is an opportunity for evaluator networking across the county and personal development. This year’s conference attendees will hear from industry experts, leaders and dairy customers about on-farm social responsibility and quality assurance measures including the dairy workforce, environmental stewardship and animal care. New to the conference, is an exciting facilitated consumer panel discussing their dairy buying habits and concerns. The FARM Town Hall will give attendees the opportunity to discuss program updates, implementation questions and concerns with FARM Staff including the new Animal Care 4.0 standards and discussion with FARM’s third party verifier, FSNS. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to attend a Cargill beef plant tour or a Quail Ridge Dairy farm tour on July 25th.
