Dairy Strong Has New Location For 2024

Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr., baseball’s “Iron Man” who holds the record for most consecutive games played, will be among the featured speakers at Dairy Strong.

The Dairy Business Association announced the full slate of speakers for its largest annual event, which will be held Jan. 16-18 at the KI Center in Green Bay, Wis. In addition to the conference, the event will feature off-site tours and an opening social gathering hosted at Lambeau Field.  The theme this year is “Growing stronger through sustainability.”

Dairy Strong attendees will unlock the potential of sustainable farming practices and discover how they can transform their businesses. They will gain practical knowledge and motivation to implement practices that will make a positive impact on the environment and their business.

“We always strive to make Dairy Strong a value for those attending through engaging programs and presenters,” DBA President Lee Kinnard said. “This year, we are excited for a new location and format to provide an even richer experience.” 

In addition to Ripken, featured speakers will include Dr. Thomas Barnett, geopolitical strategist, and Scott Caine, President of Aimpoint Research. Caine will unveil Aimpoint’s Farmer of the Future 2.0 research. The research shows a snapshot of how farmers are adapting to a post-pandemic world.

The conference will again feature an Innovation Stage and breakout sessions on sustainability, policy, business and more. The Wisconsin Master Cheesemakers Reception will also be back, and DBA will announce their 2023 Advocate of the Year at dinner on Jan. 17.
