CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. — Increasing profitability on the dairy farm will be the focus of a dairy producer-focused workshop being hosted by Chippewa County Farmers Union and Eau Claire County Farmers Union on March 15.
The event will be from 11am to 2pm at the Eagles Club, 2588 US Highway 53, Chippewa Falls (across from Farm & Fleet).
Featured speakers will include Tim Swenson, senior business consultant, and Mike Gintner, financial services executive, both with AgStar, and Kara O’Connor, government relations director for Wisconsin Farmers Union.
How can your dairy be more profitable? How are the roles of cooperatives and ag lendors changing? Join us for an interesting day of discussion and networking.
“The dairy industry is changing, and I think with it we as farmers need to sometimes shift our perspectives and farm management in consideration of those changing elements,” said Jeff Peck, Chippewa County Farmers Union member and meeting organizer. “We’re looking forward to an educational day of networking among local farmers.”
The event, sponsored by Wisconsin Farmers Union, is free and lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to the WFU State Office at 715-723-5561.
