Dairy Industry to Meet Next Week

Dairy Industry groups will meet next week in Las Vegas for their annual joint meeting. The National Milk Producers Federation, National Dairy Promotion and Research Board, and United Dairy Industry Association will meet November 14-17. 

Attendees will hear how the dairy industry groups are working to “Make Every Drop Count” for U.S. dairy farmers. 

Key topics and issues include sales, sustainability, nutrition policy, trade regulations, animal care, and changes in the global dairy marketplace. 

The national Young Cooperator program will also hold its annual session November 14-15. 

In addition to NMPF’s Town Hall session, the conference will feature a panel discussion of how NMPF and the national checkoff are working to defend the sustainability of real dairy products, particularly as the marketing environment in the dairy category becomes even more competitive. 

Another panel will discuss National Milk’s work with the U.S. Dairy Export Council to create high-value new opportunities for American dairy exports.
