If you plan to be involved in the dairy industry in any way, Dairy Sen$e® is for you. 

Through guest speakers, case studies, facility tours and networking with industry leaders, you will gain practical skills that will assist in running a profitable dairy operation. 

At Dairy Sen$e, you will learn the impact of management decisions on the bottom line, gain management skills from some of the most successful dairy farmers in Ontario, find out the key elements of a succession plan and network with other young dairy farmers. Each year brings new speakers, tours for participants and a chance to win a trip to the World Dairy Expo.

Attending Dairy Sen$e will give you insight and knowledge that you can bring back to your farm. The program offers an invaluable, intensive opportunity to learn the business and operations of dairy.
