To benefit a broad segment of the global dairy industry, the ADSA Foundation will undertake another major initiative; this time to meet the growing information needs of dairy farmers, service professionals, and students worldwide. In 1978, a symposium designed specifically to produce a book, Large Dairy Herd Management (LDHM), was held in Gainesville, Florida. Speakers’ presentations were developed into book chapters. In 1992, the book was updated under the co-editorship of Jack Van Horn and Charlie Wilcox.
Registration postmarked by March 15, 2016 is $475.00 for ADSA-ARPAS members and $575.00 for non-members, which includes sessions and most meals. After March 15, the registration fee will be $575.00 member/$675.00 non-member, and will be accepted on an availability basis.
The conference offers discounted Graduate Student Registrations. The Graduate Student rate is $225 and is available to 20 students with verification from their graduate advisor on a first come, first served basis. To register, click the Online Registration link.
