Central Plains Showcase Tour
June 25-28, 2019


For the past ten years, the Central Plains has been one of the fastest growing dairy areas in the United States. This region attracts dairy producers looking for reasonable land and feed costs and a favorable tax situation. The region’s processing capacity and great demand for milk, paired with a strong and steady support for agriculture, make it a great location to own and operate a dairy.

On the 2019 Alta ADVANTAGE Showcase Tour, we get the privilege to tour dairies set amid the sprawling prairies, fertile farmland and glacial lakes of eastern South Dakota and northwestern Iowa in the Central Plains.



Dig in to different management styles while touring a combination of cross-ventilated and tunnel ventilated barns. See a variety of milking parlor systems at work, including robotic milking units.
Learn how reproductive programs implemented by the Alta team provide exceptional pregnancy rate results. Check out traditional feed centers and exceptional calf programs. See how focused genetic plans improve actual performance results.
