Jessica Slaymaker serves on the PDMP Board as the representative of the PA Center for Dairy Excellence. She cut her teeth in dairying by learning everything she could on her own family's dairy and sponging up every PDMP program and tour she could get to. She earned a degree in Agribusiness Management at Penn State. In 2011, with her husband Dan, Jessica began the new adventure in starting their own dairy operation, and with two fast growing daughters have modernized, grown and even diversified their family business. In 2019, Jess and Dan started a milk hauling business to not only improve Slaymaker Farms' efficiencies, but to add an enterprise to their entrepreneurial venture.
