Precision Dairy 2013 was the first-ever Precision Dairy Conference and Expo held in the United States. The event took place in Rochester, Minnesota on June 26 and 27 with a pre-conference farm tour on June 25. Conference attendees numbered over 540 with 24 countries, 25 U.S. states, and 4 Canadian provinces represented. This very successful event received many positive comments from participants and exhibitors.
The conference program included the latest research abstracts, national and international speakers who are experts in the field of precision technology, and panels of producers who are using robotic milking, sensors and automated calf feeders.
The Expo provided an excellent opportunity to see first-hand what companies have to offer in the growing and exciting field of precision technologies and equipment. Company representatives were on site to give demonstrations, provide information, answer questions, and discuss the advantages of using precision technology on the farm.
