Dairy day in NYA

Expo 1CMYKHundreds of regional dairy producers and vendors congregated at Central High School on Monday, Feb. 18 for the 21st annual Carver County Dairy Expo and Trade Show. The day included a variety of seminars on pertinent topics, a keynote address by Hank Wagner about achieving success and happiness, and provided the opportunity for producers and vendors to mingle and discuss products and services.

Kallinen, who travels to dairy farms around the area, said farmers had been talking about coming to the Expo for weeks before the actual event. β€œIt is extremely worthwhile,” he said.
