2015 NMPF Annual Meeting
Every fall, the National Milk Producers Federation organizes a joint annual meeting with the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board (NDB) and the United Dairy Industry Association (UDIA). Dairy producers, member cooperatives, Young Cooperators (YCs), industry representatives, staff, and others from all over the country arrive for a few days of speeches, reports, banquets, general sessions, town hall meetings, and award ceremonies. Taking place in a different U.S. city each year, the annual meeting represents an opportunity for those active in the dairy industry to get together and share in their common accomplishments and challenges, as well as discuss the best route for the industry's future.
For information about past annual meetings, please refer to the archives in the sidebar.
