Organizers of the fourth annual Dairy Strong conference in Madison this winter are offering dairy farmers an opportunity to attend the event for free if they preregister by November 1. The conference, which serves as the annual meeting of the Dairy Business
Association, will be held January 17-18 at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center.
Dairy Strong provides farmers and dairy professionals with the opportunity to hear from renowned national speakers. The theme of the 2018 forum will be 'Sustainability Alliance.'
Former Major League Baseball Commissioner and Milwaukee Brewers Owner Bud Selig will serve as the opening keynote for Dairy Strong.
There will also be a dairy economics and milk marketing panel featuring Tom Vilsack of U.S. Dairy Export Council, Chuck Connors of National Council of Farmer Cooperatives and Michael Dykes of International Dairy Foods Association.
Meanwhile, attendees will also have the chance to network with the nation's leading suppliers on the trade show floor in a relaxed setting.
Free registration for the Dairy Strong conference ends on November 1. After that deadline, dairies can attend for $150 for two days or $99 for one day.
