Just one hour. That's all it will take for you to participate in the new Hoard's Dairyman monthly webinar series starting next Monday, January 10, at noon, central time. And you won't have to go any further than your computer. The price is just right, too: free!

Hosted by the energetic Mike Hutjens of the University of Illinois, each short, one-hour webinar will include nationally known and carefully selected presenters who will discuss the most relevant topics and challenges faced by dairymen and dairywomen across the country. During the presentation, webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenter and engage in discussions.

To sign up, visit www.hoards.com, and click on "Hoard's Webinars" in the top right corner of the home page. From this webinar page, find the registration link in the center of the page. Answer a few brief questions, and you're set. The first webinar will be titled, "Living with today's corn costs and milk prices," presented by our host, Mike Hutjens.

The Hoard's Dairyman webinars are held the second Monday of each month, starting in January 2011, and broadcast from noon until 1 p.m. central time. Once registered, you can join the webinar up to 15 minutes ahead of the start time. This will allow you time to check for sound levels and screen dynamics. We look forward to you joining us on the second Monday of each month – just one hour. And you won't even have to leave the office.
