Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin, in partnership with the Wisconsin Towns Association and the Wisconsin Counties Association are providing Agricultural Community Engagement (ACE) on-the farm. ACE is an opportunity to bring together local community leaders and dairy producers to share and discuss important issues.
ACE Twilight Meetings are free, open-invitations to all community leaders, elected officials, conservation officials, dairy and livestock producers and community members interested in learning from each other.
Those attending an ACE twilight meeting will be treated to a 60-minute tour of the hosting dairy followed by a relaxed discussion and ice cream. The discussion will provide a platform for open communication about issues important to our communities.
Schedule for the event is:
6:00 p.m. Dairy Tour
7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Ice Cream, Discussion and Q&A
Monday, August 19 Holsum Elm Dairy; N6206 Elm Road, Hilbert, WI
