Dairy Farming 101: How farmers provide 'nature's most nearly perfect food'
The dairy industry has evolved dramatically over the decades and continues to do so.

Today, consumer understanding of how dairy farmers care for their cows, the land and their workforce has waned. Emily Yeiser Stepp, Vice President of the National Dairy FARM Program, will discuss the current structure of the dairy industry, its farms and today’s practices that ensure that nature’s most nearly perfect food, milk, is one that you can feel good about purchasing.
