Have you been wondering about the FARM 4.0 Program and how it impacts dairy producers? Join us for a special edition of our monthly “Protecting Your Profits” webinar on Wednesday, July 27 from 12-1 p.m. The event will feature Beverly Hampton Phifer, Director of Animal Care from the National Dairy FARM Program, who will explain why FARM was created for dairy farmers by dairy farmers. She will share how the FARM Program protects not only individual dairy farm families but also the broader dairy industry. Every three years the FARM program is re-evaluated, and the next version will be released on July 1, 2024. The revision process has already begun, and Beverly will give updates about the revisions, how dairy farmers can be involved, and what potential changes may be made in version FARM 5.0.

Led by Zach Myers, Risk Education Manager at the Center, individuals can join the discussion via conference call, webinar, or podcast format.
