Video 4: Dairy Farmers- Why Should You Be There?

Transcript: Hi! I’m Crystal Otto and we milk just over 100 cows along the Branch River in Northeastern Wisconsin, and I went to the 2016 Forward TogetHER Conference in Minnesota and had an absolute wonderful time. [I] made some great connections with some ladies that I plan on continuing to be in touch with throughout our lifetime. What was really important to me about the conference is the togetherness and knowing that I’m not alone as a dairy producer, and a wife and a mom. There are others who are in the same boat. There are others who have gone through this and those connections and feeling less isolated meant the world to me and I would absolutely go to another conference.
