Producers 'connect with the best' at DCHA conference

"This year's DCHA Conference was one of our most successful to date," said Lane Sollenberger, DCHA President and owner of Dream Farms in Newburg, Pa. "Like the other conference attendees, I am energized by the new ideas that I can take back to my facility; gained through the seminars, farm tours and by networking with other calf and heifer raisers and industry leaders. The DCHA team is proud of our association's growth and is excited to continue building on this momentum."
