2020 MILK Business Conference Goes Online
Lenexa, Kan., (Sept. 28, 2020) – The 19th Annual MILK Business Conference, the only event that focuses exclusively on every business aspect of progressive dairy operations, will go virtual Nov. 16-17, 2020, to ensure the health, safety and accessibility of participants.
The MILK Business Conference agenda includes expert speakers within marketing, human resources, succession planning and personal health; a sneak peek at the 2020 election results and business-building tips and advice from dairy industry peers. Product and service resources will be provided by industry partners through the virtual showroom.
“Content is the magnet for audience engagement in a virtual environment,” said Cliff Becker, senior vice president of livestock for Farm Journal. “For 19 years, the MILK Business Conference has been known for delivering applicable, timely information to support the information needs of progressive, top-end dairy producers. We’ve modified our content to ensure the presentations will support the delivery and application of a virtual audience.”
Closing the conference will be keynote speaker Walt Coleman, a 30-year NFL referee and dairy producer. Attendees won’t want to miss Walt’s stories about the toughest players and coaches to ever hit the gridiron, and how those boos, cheers and arguments — along with his experiences on his dairy farm — have shaped his life and perspectives.
“The nation’s largest and most progressive dairy producers have relied on MILK Business Conference to deliver information and resources to elevate their productivity, profitability, animal husbandry practices, human resources, personal growth and health,” Becker said. “This year will be no different, except for the fact that they will be doing it from their farms and not the Las Vegas strip.”
