This year, the Global dairy Farmers (GDF) Congress will take place in East Java, Indonesia.

With a group of about 35-50 dairy farmers and industry partners, GDF will visit interesting dairy farms, learn from key dairy industry speakers and have good discussions with each other about the future of dairy farming. The theme of this year’s congress is GOT MILK 2.0? How Do We Tackle The Challenging Dairy Market. The draft programme can be viewed here.

GDF offers the opportunity to network with inspiring dairy farmers and interesting/successful characters from around the globe. The greatest intangible benefit of course are the deep and lasting friendships across continents develop over time as a result of membership.

During the annual GDF Congress participants enhance their knowledge by e.g. local farm visits, get inspired by key (non)dairy industry speakers, learn from several business cases and expand their network and leads. We have high-level speakers from companies such as Nestlé, McDonald’s, Keough Ledman Associates and Rabobank. Next to that, several progressive dairy farmers from all over the globe will share their view on the dairy market, how they tackle the challenges and inform you about their KPI’s.

The congress takes place from May 14th-19th 2017 in Malang & Surabaya, East-Java, Indonesia. Interested? Send an email to NGDF

Previous GFD congresses were in China, Vietnam, Argentina, Russia, USA and also a number of Eastern and Western European countries.
