making a difference for dairy

Overview

Who will play key leadership roles in the new administration? What changes will there be in the House and Senate when the 115th Congress convenes? Which policy issues will be front and center during the debate on the next farm bill?

IDFA’s Dairy Forum 2017 brings together the leadership of the U.S. dairy industry — processors, producers, suppliers, retailers, policy makers, academics and agricultural media — to chart a course for the year ahead.

This year, Dairy Forum will examine the political landscape in the wake of the 2016 general election, hear from top experts about the issues and trends that are shaping the industry and discuss the policies that matter most to the dairy industry.

Plan now to join your colleagues at Dairy Forum 2017 for some blue-sky thinking as we shape our industry for the coming year and beyond.
