Testimonials from previous attendees:
Exceptionally well put-together, run by engaging and informative presenters who are just an absolute wealth of information and experience. Learned so much, not just about milk quality but also how I engage with clients.
The consultation and communication skills covered in the course are applicable to all consultations with farming clients. This will be highly valuable to my work generally.
The investment on our part has been well rewarded and despite the focus being milk quality, my enthusiasm for the broader dairy component of the work we do has grown significantly also.
