Dairy Girl Network is Looking to Add a Veterinarian to it’s Advisors

Nominate a veterinarian HERE.

The Dairy Girl Network Board of Directors includes elected representatives serving as dairy farmers and industry professionals as well as advisory members of the DGN Board of Directors. The Dairy Girl Network Board of Directors oversees the overall execution of the organization’s mission, while the advisory members provides their expertise in specific areas. We are looking for a veterinarian, whether practicing or industry, to join this team! This position is open to males and females.

The advisory members cannot vote in decisions but are on the Board to provide their opinions and perspectives. These individuals provide expertise in specific areas that are not represented on the Board and must be dependable and accessible if needed.

Terms are set for three years and each individual can serve three terms. Advisory members are to attend one in-person meeting per year, as well as conference calls once a month, be active in conversations, and serve as part of board committees. Periodically the Board will hold additional meetings or planning sessions.

In true Dairy Girl style, we ask that you nominate a qualified veterinarian for our one open advisory member position. Individuals can nominate another person, but we do ask that no self-nominations be made. Please nominate a veterinarian HERE. Nominations will close April 8th.

Join Us for a Webinar on 2/15/19- For the Love of Dairy

WebinarGraphic_Feb2019

For the Love of Dairy

The webinar will be presented by farmers and agvocates Jessica Peters, Spruce Row Dairy, Pennsylvania, and Katie Dotterer-Pyle, Cow Comfort Inn Dairy, Maryland, on Friday, February 15th, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. CST | 1:00 p.m. EST | 11:00 a.m. MST | 10:00 a.m. PST

The best way to promote dairy is simple: dairy farmers need to start getting real. Our love for dairy is obvious, but how do we put that love into words and concepts that consumers can relate to? We can change how the public perceives dairy, but to do that we need to keep changing with our audience. Together, Jessica and Katie will share their tips and ideas of how to put your best foot forward on social media. Through stories of their successes and failures, they hope to give others the confidence to share their own story. 


$10 DGN programming fee (login instructions will be provided in e-mail confirmation before the webinar).
