Dairy Girl Network welcomes two new partnerships at the Sustaining sponsorship level. CRV USA and DeLaval each bring longstanding dedication to women in dairy farming and serving leadership roles.“The fast-growing Dairy Girl Network is poised to reach hundreds, if not thousands, more dairywomen in the years ahead,” comments Laura Daniels, founder and president. “Thanks to CRV and DeLaval, we will strengthen Dairy Girl Network programming and continue the quest to reach more women in isolated areas.”
CRV USA is a world-leading cattle improvement organization helping dairy producers build healthy, easy-to-manage, and profitable herds.
“The Dairy Girl Network team is full of energy, brings a unique perspective, and endless resources to dairywomen across the country,” says Amy VanderMark, CRV USA Managing Director. “For many years, CRV has looked for ways to build alliances and support women in our industry. I hope to carry on that tradition by becoming active with the group and supporting the great women I’ve had the pleasure meeting and working alongside—and meeting many more along the way.”
DeLaval is a worldwide leader in milking equipment and solutions for dairy farmers.
“Supporting Dairy Girl Network programs has perfect alignment with our values and ambitions,” states Fernando Cuccioli, DeLaval North America President. “As a leading company in the dairy industry, a key factor of DeLaval’s success is the diversity of our workforce including more and more female professionals to our already large pool of talent.”Dairy Girl Network programs and events support all women in dairy by enhancing lives and creating opportunities. By working together with sponsors, Dairy Girl Network members gain valuable connections and resources and are able to share their experiences while supporting and encouraging fellow dairywomen.
The foundation of Dairy Girl Network was networking events and has since evolved to programming of peer groups and Inspire Mentorship. The first Dairy Girl Network Forward TogetHER National Conference will be held on November 1 to 3, 2016, in Minneapolis, Minn. The conference is set to deliver over 25 dynamic speakers, breakout sessions and thought provoking panel discussions.
