December 3–4, 2019 Treasure Island Resort & Casino 5734 Sturgeon Lake Road Welch, MN 55089 Opportunities Abound! The 2019 Minnesota Milk Dairy Conference and Expo focused on recognizing and seizing opportunities. We were back at Treasure Island Resort and Casino for a third year with programming on December 3rd and 4th. We were even more excited to welcome new partner organizations to the year’s event. We were pleased to partner with the Upper Midwest Dairy Industry Association (UMDIA) and the Midwest Forage Association (MFA). By building a foundation, we’ve planted the seed of opportunity and expect these partnerships to flourish as we all provide unique strengths that benefit the entire dairy community. The Upper Midwest Dairy Industry Association’s purpose is to promote the dairy industry by providing information, educational services, networks and contests that encourage improvement in the quality and safety of dairy and food products. UMDIA will provide specific programming on both conference days. The Midwest Forage Association is dedicated to creating, promoting and supporting value to the forage industry through leadership, research, and education to improve profitability for users and producers of forage crops emphasizing environmentally sounds systems. MFA’s Tour de Forage joins our conference on Wednesday to convene both forage growers and dairy producers. We had an exciting 48 hours—filled with time to network, great sessions to choose from, and more. We hope you were able to join us at the event.
