Information To Help Your Operations

  1. Audio: Food Safety Isn't Interesting... Until It Is - Tony Flood,International Food Information Council, asks "How much time do you spend learning about something you don't think you'll need?" and provides insight on how this applies to food safety. He suggests creativity is key to implementing food safety.
  2. Study: Cost of Production More Important Than Milk Prices - According to the DairyCo (UK) Milkbench+ report, the relationship between cost of production and profit is much stronger than many dairies realize. The report states that cost of production is the most significant factor in determining profit. Another key finding: "Average yield per cow is not the main driver of profit. Higher yields are not the answer if they are produced at the expense of feed efficiency; every extra gallon needs to be profitable."
  3. Audio: Do You Have Leadership Traits? - Ian Davis, retired Managing Director at McKinsey & Company, recently shared his top five leadership traits with Stanford's Graduate School of Business students. Ian has consulted with major international management leaders, seeing very good... and some not very good management teams. This half hour program is a great thought provoker for your management team and might be a good point of initiation for the 'up and comers' that are ready for advancement [audio][video].
  4. Nestlé Strategy To Access The China Dairy Market - How does a foreign company gain access to such a large food market like China? Build infrastructure and train people in China to create and build supply chains. Nestlé SA is doing just that with the Chinese dairy market by spending millions of dollars to teach farmers how to care for their cows.
