Michael Haddad (CEO, Schreiber Foods), Dave Fuhrmann (CEO, Foremost Farms USA), Dermot Carey (Senior VP, Darigold Inc.), Bruce Pronschinske (Director, Kwik Trip) and Keith Gomes (COO, Dairy Farmers of America) are among the confirmed speakers at the Wisconsin Dairy Products Association’s 2014 Dairy Symposium.

The event will be held July 14 and 15 at The Landmark Resort, Door County, Wis. The Dairy Symposium includes WDPA’s annual meeting. The event focuses on issues impacting all dairy processors. The two-day meeting consists of programs, social events, a golf outing, and the opportunity to network with leading dairy executives, according to WDPA’s Brad Legreid.

The educational program includes these sessions:

• When Animal Husbandry Is Attacked By Activists. The dairy industry is in the crosshairs of animal rights groups. Secret surveillances of dairy farms are becoming increasingly popular with anti-agriculture activists. Their undercover videos cause public outcries and wreak havoc on producers and processors. Hear a real life story of how one incident played out and what you can do to safeguard your company from these attacks.

• How Exporting Is Redefining Traditional Product Pricing. The exporting of dairy products to foreign countries has picked up steam in the past few years. Emerging markets around the globe are snapping up products which used to be sold on the domestic market. With export numbers continuing to rise, dairy prices are soaring in this country. Three experts will examine these new marketplaces and share their thoughts on what the future holds.

• Executive Round Table on Dairy Markets. A panel of dairy executives will share their views on how national and global economies are affecting their companies and how they are dealing with current market challenges. A discussion of how these companies are maintaining their competitiveness and how they are positioning themselves for future growth will round out this thought-provoking session.

 The 2014 Dairy Symposium concludes with a lunch and guest speaker, Jim Mulhern, CEO, National Milk Producers Federation. To register, call 608-836-3336 or email
