Would you like a chance to join the ‘Three-Truck-Trip®’ 2016 in September this year?

If so Vitfoss, in association with British Dairying, are offering you the opportunity for an all-expenses paid, dairy study tour worth over £2,500 to the centre of the US dairy industry. Participants leave the UK on Saturday 17th and return on Thursday 22nd of September 2016 as part of a memorable trip organised by the Zinpro Corporation.

The US tour comprises of 15 UK guests in three trucks visiting some of the top dairy herds in Vermont and New York states where herds achieve an average age at first calving of 25 months.

The aim of the tour is to allow key people involved in UK dairying to see at first-hand how US producers are using the latest technology and tools to manage and sustain their businesses in a global market that optimises income over feed costs.

Each day starts with a talk from a prominent dairy expert followed by farm visits to see the ‘theory’ in practice and will cover:

  • Nutrition principles and feed management
  • Transition Management
  • Economic Success - Surviving a Negative Market
  • Inflammation and Immunity

At Vitfoss we’re focused on transferring the latest knowledge to continually improve the performance of dairy producers throughout Europe. We are pleased to offer the opportunity for UK producers to experience and bring home some of the latest ideas and management practices from one of the world’s leading milk producing countries.
