The University of Minnesota invites you to attend the Dairy Conference, June 22-23, 2021. The event will be a ‘neutral space’ where many technologies come together to be discussed and learned about. Producers, consultants, veterinarians, industry representatives, and researchers are all part of the program, which is more end-user focused this year.

The in-person capacity is limited due to pandemic restrictions – only a few spots left, register soon! But don’t fret if there is no more space available. The virtual experience will be unique as you will be able to see the presenters in the room as they present and are recorded live. In addition, there will be 30 minutes of live audience discussion during each 1 ½ hour session, which provides an opportunity for many experiences to be shared. If you can’t attend all the virtual live streaming sessions as they are happening, you can come back later to watch the recording of all presentations and audience discussions.

A great program with keynote talks by Aidan Connolly (President, AgriTech Capital), Trevor deVries (Professor, University of Guelph), Tim Taylor (CEO, Vyla) and Brandon Treichler (quality control veterinarian, Select Milk Producers). Panels include dairy producers from Minglewood Inc., Pattison Dairy, Honey Creek Dairy and more; veterinarians Don Niles, Megan Schrupp, and Mark Thomas; nutritionists Marty Faldet and Chad Kieffer; researcher Victor Cabrera along with dairy producers; and more. Platinum sponsor short presentations by Brad Biehl (CEO, AMS-Galaxy), Mateus Peiter (Cargill), John Gerbitz (DeLaval), GEA (TBD), and Tara Bohnert (Nedap). Startup spotlight short presentations by Armenta, Cainthus, Connecterra, Labby, milc group, and VES-Artex. All of these presenters – with a few exceptions - will attend in person at the Hyatt Regency Bloomington, MN, the conference venue where everyone is staying – an opportunity to network outside conference time.

The organizing committee is very thankful to industry sponsors for their support, especially Platinum sponsors AMS-Galaxy, Cargill, DeLaval, GEA, and Nedap; Gold sponsors Lely, milc group, and Trioliet; and Silver sponsors Bou-matic and UNIFORM-Agri.
