Innovation – The Theme At PDPW Conference

A key to success in today’s fast-paced dairy industry is a focus on continuous improvement and innovation. The 2024 Annual Business Conference presented by the Professional Dairy Producers will provide two days of networking and learning. Whether you’re a producer, industry professional, or student, this is your chance to get the tools to drive innovation in your business.

The conference will be held March 13-14 at the Kalahari Resorts in Wisconsin Dells. It features 54 learning sessions including keynote, break-out, hands-on and learning lounge presentations. There will also be two sessions for 15-18 year-olds to build leadership and communications skills. Business conference sessions will be translated simultaneously for attendees who prefer to learn in Spanish.

“Whether you’re a forward-thinking dairy producer, a seasoned allied-industry professional, someone just entering the dairy sector, or a top researcher or educator, there is no other place you can spend just two days to sharpen your skill set,” says Shelly Mayer, dairy producer and PDPW executive director.

In addition to the packed agenda of producers and experts from across the country, the conference will showcase companies whose novel ideas, products and services offer innovative solutions to producers and agri-business professionals. Representatives from each company will give a 15-minute presentation followed by a professionally moderated question-and-answer segment.

The Hall of Ideas Equipment and Trade Show features premier dairy suppliers with new technologies, insights and innovations in every aspect of the dairy industry. In addition to seeing the latest in products and services exhibitors offer, that space offers time and amenities for networking with speakers, vendors and other attendees.

Also located inside the Hall of Ideas, the Preview Stage will showcase the latest research from university researchers, graduate students and Dairy Innovation Hub-funded professors.
