Michael Dykes Opens Dairy Forum with Call for Collaboration

Feb 02, 2017

Michael Dykes, D.V.M., IDFA president and CEO, addressed more than 1,100 dairy producers, processors, suppliers and other stakeholders on Monday at Dairy Forum with a call for renewed collaboration. “We’ll be stronger working together,” Dykes said, noting that all segments likely have a shared interest in more than 90 percent of the issues facing the industry today.

Areas for joint efforts will include building relationships with the new administration and new Congress and pursuing common goals on the farm bill, the school lunch program, trade policy, the Nutrition Facts label and GMO disclosure standard.  

A video of his presentation and slides are available on Broadcast Live website.
