The University of Minnesota invites you to the first U.S. Precision Dairy Conference and Expo! The Precision Dairy Conference 2013 will be held at Mayo Civic Center, Rochester, Minnesota with the main Program and Expo on June 26 and 27, 2013. There will be an optional Farm Tour on June 25, 2013.

I would encourage all Southeast Minnesota dairy producers to give serious thought to attending. It isn’t often that we have this level of conference on our doorstep!

Precision dairy management involves the use of sensors to collect information automatically, and the use of robotics and other automation to deliver labor and management tasks automatically, resulting in reduced labor and management time and improved productivity and profitability.

The Precision Dairy 2013 program will include national and international speakers who are experts in this field, the latest research abstracts, and panels of producers who are using robotic milking, sensors and automated calf feeders.

The Expo will be an opportunity to see first-hand what companies have to offer in the growing and exciting field of precision technologies and equipment.

Please check the website often for news and additional details: precisiondairy.umn.edu

Registration for the Conference and Expo (June 26-27) is $195 per person (includes proceedings, lunches, refreshments). The deadline for early registration is May 31. After May 31, the Conference and Expo registration fee increases to $255.00. There is an Optional Banquet (June 26) - $45 per person and an Optional Tour (June 25) - $45 per person
