A South Dakota dairy producer who traveled with his wife on a mission to Haiti is the headline speaker at the 2013 Nebraska Dairy Convention on Tuesday, March 12, at Divots Conference Center in Norfolk.
Dave Hansen was featured in a recent Midwest Dairy Association video that emphasized how dairy plays an important role in feeding the world. His presentation, and the crowning of the new Nebraska Dairy Princess, will take place during the convention banquet at 6:30 p.m., preceded by a reception at 5:30 p.m.
The convention includes a trade show that runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and informational sessions throughout the day. The Nebraska Holstein Association meets at 11 a.m. and the Nebraska State Dairy Association Annual Meeting takes place at 12:30 p.m.
