PDPW Financial Literacy for Dairy®

Posted July 2, 2020

The right skills, the right tools – both are needed to succeed in the dairy industry today. Financial Literacy for Dairy is a dairy-specific financial program that offers in-depth and best-in-class education for dairy farmers and other professionals to make sound business decisions in today’s challenging economic environment. The program is designed to help farmers and other professionals stretch their thinking beyond current comfort zones.

With varying levels of financial understanding, base knowledge and experiences, attendees are placed into one of three levels of curriculum after completing an online placement test. Being placed in a class with like-minded peers allows attendees to put their newly learned financial skills straight to work and givesthem the confidence and knowledge they will need to make tough financial business decisions.

“To make it in farming today you need to be more than good with cows – you must be business savvy as well. I’ve attended financial workshops in the past, but until this program I didn’t find anything in-depth enough to make a difference to my business.”
