The Center for Dairy Excellence is offering a three-part webinar series on working with people on a dairy farm: Building the Bridge: The People Side of Dairying. So why are we sharing it on the Poultry Extension portal?!

The webinar topics are about working with people, including family members and teams – and that could be useful for non-dairy producers, too.

The webinars are

  • Wednesday, July 8  |  12:30-2 p.m.

    “Working with Family” with Rob Skacel. Understand the differences in working with family and learn how to navigate difficult discussions to help resolve conflicts and strengthen family dynamics.
  • Wednesday, July 15  | 12:30-2 p.m.

    “Dealing with Change” with Dr. Charles Gardner. Understand the different types of people who could be on dairy farm teams, discuss the common resistance to make changes, and how to manage team discussions around change.
  • Wednesday, July 22 | 12:30-2 p.m.

“Using a Team” with a panel of Pennsylvania dairy producers: Jeremy Tanner, Andy Bollinger and Matt Bomgardner. Learn how a team can provide a broader perspective and help navigate difficult decisions and bottlenecks on the farm.
