Mark your calendar now and plan to join your colleagues at Dairy Forum 2012, set for Jan. 15-18, 2012 at the La Quinta Resort & Club in La Quinta, Calif.

Hosted by the International Dairy Foods Association, Washington, D.C., Dairy Forum has long been considered the industry's premier meeting, bringing together producers, processors, suppliers, policy makers and industry leaders to network and discuss the policies, politics and trends shaping the U.S. dairy industry.

Next year, Dairy Forum will expand its focus to take a look at the global food environment and examine dairy's role in meeting global demand.
