The second National Dairy FARM Program Evaluator Conference will be held in Indianapolis, Ind., on July 18-20, 2017. More than 400 trained FARM Animal Care evaluators will have the chance to network and discuss relevant topics in animal care, environmental stewardship and proper antibiotic use.

During the three-day conference, FARM Animal Care Evaluators will spend a day with staff from event sponsor Elanco, take part in presentations on topics like “The Economics of Animal Well-Being” and the importance of employee training, and have the option of visiting a 3,000-cow dairy operation.

On July 18, Elanco will host a professional development training session to teach evaluators about the company’s global business operation and commitment to feeding the world. On July 20, meeting attendees will visit Fair Oaks Farms, tour the dairy facilities and engage in a discussion on employee training.
