Dairy Facts 2016

Dairy Forum to Feature Former USDA Chiefs of Staff

Sep 21, 2016

As the dust settles after hard-fought presidential and congressional races, which campaign positions will become the next piece of legislation or regulatory mandate? What will change for food and agriculture, and where will dairy stand?

A panel of experienced agriculture policy makers will participate at Dairy Forum 2017, Jan. 29-Feb.1 in Orlando, to prognosticate on what the dairy industry can expect to see in the year ahead.

The session on “Food Policy and the Farm Bill—What’s Next?” will feature a candid conversation with former chiefs of staff from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They will examine the emerging priorities for agriculture in the new administration and offer a look at how today’s political platforms can become tomorrow’s policies.

The panel is part of a powerful political program on the agenda at Dairy Forum 2017.

More than 1,000 dairy leaders will convene at Dairy Forum next year to chart the new political landscape, hear from experts about issues and trends shaping the industry, and engage in blue-sky thinking about policies that matter most to the dairy industry.

Visit the online agenda for Dairy Forum 2017 for a full listing of sessions and topics.

Dairy Forum 2017 will be held Jan. 29-Feb. 1 at the J.W. Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes hotel in Orlando. For more information about hotel and travel reservations, visit the Dairy Forum microsite. Registration is available online.
