I can not stress the importance of attending an ACT event because the knowledge and camaraderie that we have gained is irreplaceable.

Thank you to all who joined us for the 2013 ACT Conference for young farmers held this year in Syracuse, N.Y.!

Advancing Cooperation Together Conference held March 1-3, 2013

Dairylea Cooperative Inc. and Dairy Farmers of America, Inc., were proud to once again sponsor the Advancing Cooperation Together (ACT) Conference. The conference, held March 1-3, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Syracuse, N.Y., brought together young farmer members from farms across the Northeast to hear important information affecting the dairy industry, including updates on how Dairylea Cooperative and Dairy Farmers of America are responding to marketing conditions, economic changes, milk inspector and plant perspectives, crop tips and much more.

The conference began Friday evening with a welcome reception and Farm Services trade show, where members had the opportunity to talk with farm service representatives on products, services and savings available to them through their membership. Just a few of these offerings are insurance, risk management tools, a member savings network and farm supplies unit.
