GDF Congress

At least once every 18 months the GDF congress is organized, each time in a different country / continent.

With a group of about 35 dairy farmers and industry partners we hope to 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.


The upcoming GDF congress will take place in Egypt: February 2016
