Back In The Driver's Seat

Record milk prices have pushed dairy margins to very comfortable levels, but what about next year—and beyond? The 2014 Elite Producer Business Conference, Nov. 3-5 in Las Vegas, is geared to answer that question. Don’t miss these highlights:

  • Michael Swanson, vice-president and chief economist with Wells Fargo, kicks off the meeting with his global outlook. His unique perspective shows how China’s loosening of its one-child family policy and civil war in Ukraine can affect U.S. milk prices.
  • Does the dairy margin protection insurance offer sufficient coverage for large farms? Risk managers and brokers from Dairy Farmers of America, Stewart-Peterson and AgDairy LLC will wrestle the issue—and answer your questions. 
  • Danielle Paris, director of menu innovation with McDonald’s, and Rachel Kyllo, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Kemps, share how product innovation and packaging is turning fluid sales higher.
  • Other speakers will cover how consumers view modern dairy production, why you need a crisis management plan, the 2015 commodity price outlook, preventing labor lawsuits, working smart with cloud-based technology and benefits of a peer group. 

Elite Producer Business Conference is sponsored by: Animal Health International, Arm & Hammer Animal Nutrition, Bayer Animal Health, Dairy Farmers of America, GEA Farm Technologies, Micro, MWI Veterinary Supply, Mycogen Seeds, Nutrition Physiology Co. LLC and Yoplait. Supporting sponsors include Calibrate, John Deere, Kansas Department of Agriculture, Krone, Nexgrow Genetics, Quality Liquid Feeds, Vi-COR, Westway Feed Products and Zinpro Performance Minerals.
