The Great Lakes Regional Dairy Conference is quickly approaching. Coordinators are hard at work planning an educational and entertaining event. The 2014 GLRDC will run from February 6th until the 8th at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.
“The planning committee has been committed to identifying speakers who will provide the latest and highest quality information on timely topics important to the region’s dairy producers, farm managers and dairy industry professionals. Our goal is to provide an engaging forum for all sectors of the dairy industry to come together in one place at one time to learn, share information and gather the latest resources to help increase their profitability while doing more with less.”
– Brian Troyer, GLRDC executive board member and dairy nutrition specialist
