February 7-9, 2019 Bavarian Inn and Conference Center Frankenmuth, MI
Since 2003, the Great Lakes Regional Dairy Conference (GLRDC) has been dedicated to helping dairy producers learn new ways of increasing their profitability by doing more with less.
Thanks to support from generous industry supporters, the GLRDC has earned a reputation as a top educational conference. In 2018, more than 350 producers and dairy industry representatives attended this three-day event. This year, we’re building on that momentum by delivering another high-impact conference. With the current state of milk prices and ever-increasing consumer demands, dairy producers are facing a volatile environment. Attend this year’s Great Lakes Regional Dairy Conference to arm yourself with the knowledge, tools and strategies to help ensure your future in dairy.
Dairy Industry Recognition Night
In addition to our quality line-up of educational speakers, we will once again be the home base for the tenth annual Dairy Industry Recognition Night where we will honor the industry’s leading producers, recognize dairy scholarship recipients and dairy judging team members, as well as announce the new group of dairy ambassadors with an all new program.
