This upcoming Jan. 23-24, 2019, hundreds of dairy farmers from throughout Wisconsin, the Midwest and the nation will come to the Monona Terrace in Madison, Wis., for Dairy Strong – an exciting conference and trade show. Dairy farmers who register by Nov. 1 are invited to attend Dairy Strong for free.
Registration is now open at dairystrong.org. To receive two complimentary registrations, farmers must register BEFORE NOV. 1. After Nov. 1, dairies can attend for $150 for two days or $99 for one day.
Here are just a few reasons to attend:
Inspiring Keynotes – Dairy Strong provides farmers and dairy professionals with the opportunity to hear from renowned national speakers. Molly Fletcher will serve as the opening keynote for Dairy Strong 2019. She was hailed as the “female Jerry Maguire” as she represented sport’s biggest names, including Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz, PGA TOUR golfer Matt Kuchar, broadcaster Erin Andrews, and basketball coaches Tom Izzo and Doc Rivers. Molly will call on her business wisdom, relationship experience and unwavering optimism to draw parallels to the dairy community.
Valuable Connections – Relationships matter. Dairy Strong is where farmers, corporate professionals and representatives from government agencies and universities come together with a united mission to move dairy forward. Attendees will also have the chance to network with the nation’s leading suppliers in our relaxed and intimate trade show. Dairy Strong is an inclusive environment where farms of all sizes and business philosophies connect with each other and the dairy community.
Time well spent – Time off the farm is hard to come by and the schedule for January’s event packs a punch. There will be innovative and practical sessions to help farmers improve their dairies, as well as main-stage speakers covering important issues like dairy economics and election outcomes. Now more than ever, farmers need a few days off the farm to recharge and return with new ideas and a fresh perspective.
No other industry event offers this caliber of programming at no cost to the farmer. Each dairy that registers by Nov. 1 will get two free passes to Dairy Strong. Transportation and hotel are on your own, but all meals and sessions are included.
Industry professionals are also invited to attend Dairy Strong. For a full slate of registration options, schedule and to get updates about Dairy Strong, go to dairystrong.org. Sponsorships and exhibitor booths are also available.
