We’re inviting you to be a part of our continued growth by becoming a sponsor of the 2017 GLRDC. This is a key opportunity to position your name in front of the state’s dairy producers.  GLRDC continues to draw a variety of producers from large to small and tends to draw many producers in the 18-36 age range. These producers are the ones you want to get to know!

The 2017 GLRDC will be held Feb. 2-4 at the Bavarian Inn Lodge in Frankenmuth, Michigan. The conference will focus on international dairy forecast for the future, labor management, genomics, dairying in the west, myths around milk and nutrition, water quality and a full breed association agenda and the ninth annual Michigan Dairy Industry Recognition Night.
