Once every year the Global dairy Farmers (GDF) Congress is organized, each time in a different country / continent. With a group of about 50 dairy farmers and industry partners we visit interesting dairy farms, learn from key dairy industry speakers and have good discussions with each other about the future of dairy farming. Related to an actual dairy topic we organize this congress as the GDF management team together with our members, partners and local contacts. GDF offers the opportunity to network with inspirational/aspirational dairy farmers and interesting/successful characters from around the world.
This year’s theme ‘Got milk 2.0?’ was all about answering the question ‘How do we tackle the challenging dairy market’ for the entire dairy supply chain: the supplying industry, the dairy farmers themselves and the companies that buy and process the milk into products for the consumers? High level speakers from Nestle, McDonald’s, Jaylor, Keough Ledman Associates, Danone and Rabobank shared their insights and visions on this theme. Several progressive dairy farmers from all over the world also shared their views, showing that finding practical answers is not always easy.
The greatest intangible benefit of course are the deep and lasting friendships across continents develop over time as a result of membership. GDF is proudly exclusive and trust, integrity and confidentiality are assumed. It has always been a fundamental plank of GDF to invite only a small but select representation of dairy farmers and companies from key and emerging dairy industries from around the world. Congresses have taken place, even before it was ever 'trendy' to visit these countries, such as China, Vietnam, Argentina, Russia and also a number of Eastern and Western European countries and USA.
