The 2015 Great Lakes Regional Dairy Conference is fast approaching! This year’s event will take place at the Bavarian Inn Lodge in Frankenmuth, Michigan, February 5-7, 2015.

Since 2003, the Great Lakes Regional Dairy Conference (GLRDC) has been dedicated to helping dairy producers learn new ways of increasing their profitability by doing more with less. Thanks to support from generous industry supporters, the GLRDC has earned a reputation as a top educational conference. In 2014, more than 350 producers and dairy industry representatives attended this three-day event. This year, we’re building on that momentum by delivering another high-impact conference. Leading experts will make presentations on topics ranging from nutrition and genetics to the future of the dairy industry, dairy sustainability and economics.

In addition to our quality line-up of educational speakers, we will once again be the home base for the eighth annual Dairy Industry Recognition Night where we will honor the industry’s leading producers, recognize dairy scholarship recipients and dairy judging team members, as well as announce the 2015 winners of the Michigan Dairy Ambassador Program.

This is your conference. Don’t miss it.

Are you planning to bring a group of 10 or more to the GLRDC? We can offer discounted rates and help schedule tours to local dairy farms or processors. Call Megghan Honke at 517-884-7089 for more information.

“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
