The second is the Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania’s November Issues Forum 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m.Thursday, Nov. 7, in Elverson, Berks County.

The conference is designed for those interested in middle management on a dairy. It will be in a workshop format to provide real-life examples and opportunity for discussion.
