The annual EDF Congress is a highlight since EDF’s foundation. Every year more than 300 members, partner and other interested dairy enthusiasts meet to discuss a specific topic and to learn about dairy farming in the host country. Every EDF congress is organized by a different national branch.
Congress in 2016
Participants of the EDF congress can look forward to plenary sessions with interesting guest speakers, workshops in small groups, visit of EDF member farms and enough time and opportunities for socializing with other participants. The 2016 EDF Congress will take place in La Baule, France, from June 28-30. It will be organised by the French EDF branch under the topic: Think differently. Think diversity. See our website for the invitation video 2016.
