The 2021 Pennsylvania Dairy Summit is going virtual! During the four-day event on February 8-11, let’s emerge together into this new chapter and find solutions to help our industry advance, adapt, perform, and thrive. With an expert line-up of dynamic speakers, opportunities to get a virtual look at different dairy operations, and other exciting networking opportunities, the virtual Dairy Summit is designed to bring the industry together as we look to the future.

Hosted by the Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania and Center for Dairy Excellence, the annual dairy conference will utilize a virtual conference platform to ensure the program is robust, accessible, educational, and engaging for dairy producers and allied-industry representatives in Pennsylvania and across the nation.

“The benefit of a virtual format is we were able to secure an expert line-up of speakers that are not always available for in-person events. These speakers are bold, forward-thinking and will be available to chat with attendees and answer questions in real time,” said Jessica Slaymaker, the 2021 Pennsylvania Dairy Summit chair and a dairy farmer from Tioga County. “Dairy producers will emerge with a new outlook, fresh ideas, and renewed perspectives on the future of dairy.”
