"I enjoyed meeting and talking with the presenters and the other students. This was some of the most direct and concise dairy management training I have had. The classes were more intense than I expected. The content was of a high enough level to be useful without becoming academic. For me, the ROI on AltaU is very positive."

"I really liked having world class speakers with decades of experience and knowledge who explain topics in a clear and concise manner. I learned more in 5 days at AltaU than in a year of university. If you are managing a dairy, you need to take this course if you want to improve performance and profitability."
