In the opening session, IDFA President and CEO Michael Dykes, D.V.M., sat down for a one-on-one interview with Sara Wyant, president of Agri-Pulse Communications, Inc., and editor and publisher of Agri-Pulse.com. The dairy industry, from producer to processor, is not unlike other evolving industries, and has experienced significant phases of consolidation and realignment due to market, consumer, and external forces.

Michael and Sara discussed the state of the dairy industry and how industry leaders are pushing toward the future even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the supply chain and global markets. With a new Farm Bill on the horizon and changes in political leadership in Washington, D.C., how IDFA helps the industry navigate the next few years will be critical in dairy’s evolution.
