NODPA’s 8th annual Field Days Event
and Annual Producer Meeting

Monday October 27th at 9:00 am to Tuesday October 28th at Noon
Holiday Inn, Auburn/Fingerlakes
New York 13021

This year’s NODPA Field Days are at a different time of year as we have heard from many of you that the mid August date conflicts with other commitments. We have also decided to move away from a farm based venue and schedule the meeting just prior to the Understanding Organics: Livestock Management and Health conference for veterinarians, extension educators and agri-service personnel to facilitate some networking between the different participants.

NODPA’s Field Days are a great place to re-connect with friends and with what is going on in the organic dairy world. The annual producer meeting on Monday evening will be an opportunity for NODPA farmer members to be updated on the previous year’s work and set the priorities for the NODPA work in 2009 -2014.

As usual, we will have a trade show for 1 and 1/2 days, workshops and speakers talking on the many issues that affect organic dairy, plus a visit to a local organic farm. There will also be many opportunities for farmers to visit the trade show, network with one another, learn about trends in the industry, and meet resource people who will be on hand.  Save the date and watch the mail for a brochure on the event; remember to check out the NODPA News and the NODPA website for further details as they develop.

If you are interested is sponsoring this event, or making a donation to support it and NODPA’s great work, please contact Ed Maltby in order to be included in the 3,000 brochures that will be mailed out. If you want to be an exhibitor and promote your product at the tradeshow, contact Ed Maltby quickly before the limited space disappears. For more information contact Ed Maltby by phone: 413-772-0444 or email: emaltby@comcast.net.
