Dairy Producers Pack Bags for NDPC Next Week
May 5, 2011
The time has arrived for dairy producers and others in the industry to head to Omaha, NE, for the National Dairy Producers Conference, taking place next week from May 15 – 17 at the Embassy Suites Hotel.
Participants signed up for the optional farm tour on Sunday will have the opportunity to visit Butler County Dairy in Surprise and the Archer Daniels Midland Company ethanol plant in Columbus. After a welcome reception and dinner on Sunday, the general program kicks off on Monday morning.
Dairy industry leaders will hear about the current environment on Capitol Hill, the preparations underway for the next Farm Bill, balancing trade, managing high input costs, environmental concerns, and animal care issues.
The NDPC would not have been possible without the support of generous sponsors, who contributed to events and the conference in general.
