Summer Tour to Ohio June 4-5
Some exciting plans are underway for the IDP Summer Tour to Ohio! First stop in Ohio will be Select Sires' headquarters in Plain City. We have a bull parade planned, and then we will have the opportunity to learn from Gary Conklin. You may remember a video that was secretly filmed at his dairy farm in 2010 that received national attention. He learned some difficult and valuable lessons and will share some of them with us. We also plan to visit Miley Holsteins in West Salem, Ohio and Pine Tree Dairy in Rittman. We also will stop at Eastern Laboratory Services. The cost of attending for IDP member farms is $125 for the first farm member and $75 for any subsequent members. All students can attend for $75. This price includes transportation, lunch and dinner on June 4th. You will need to make your own lodging reservations. A block of rooms has been reserved at Comfort Inn and Suites in Wadsworth, Ohio (just west of Akron) for $99.99. This rate is guaranteed through May 15th. To make reservations, call 330-336-7692 and ask for the Indiana Dairy rate. Download a brochure with more information here. Even though it's not mentioned in the brochure, sometimes the bus conversation is the best take-away of all! Why not join us on June 4-5!
