FARMERS SOLUTION CENTER LIVE BLOCK 2
Walking through a barn and sniffing if the feed is alright, may still not be possible at this time, but we will get you as close as it gets! Farmers from different continents of the world will guide you through their farm and pick out topics which we like to call "the smoking guns of the dairy industry". Looking forward to see you at the Farmers Solution Center.
