Save the date for Dairy Financial & Risk Management Conference

The Center for Dairy Excellence will host its fourth annual Dairy Financial and Risk Management Conference on Tuesday, September 23, from 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Central Penn Business Conference, located at 600 Valley Road, Summerdale, Pa., just outside of Harrisburg. The event is held annually to provide dairy lenders and financial consultants with insight and strategies to help their dairy clients improve profitability.

“This is a great event for those who work with dairy farm families to gain greater understanding about the volatility of the dairy market,” said Alan Zepp, risk management program manager at the Center for Dairy Excellence. “We have three exceptional speakers discussing topics at the conference that will give insight into maximizing their bottom line.”

Keynote speaker Greg Bethard, Ph.D., will draw on his experience as a management consultant to dairy farms around the world to guide Pennsylvania lenders on which benchmarks to put their focus. He will also share his first hand perspective on the international dairy industry. Dr. Mark Stephenson with the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Dr. Chuck Nicholson with Penn State Smeal College of Business will review the new federal dairy policy and its implications for the industry.
