Brett Stuart, Global AgriTrend, discovers and organizes global protein data and pulls back the conversation to what it means to US protein producers. Mr. Stuart shares a map that highlights that more people live inside the mapped circle than outside (most of China & India are shown) and they are where the markets opportunities are happening.

Mr. Stuart provides deep data on the markets and how they impact global economics. His key message: rising incomes will continue shift diets; China will need more corn, pork, oilseeds, and dairy.

Wade Dooley, Albion IA, shares his family's practical experience of working a 1,200+ acre crop and cattle operation in the vicinity of the Iowa river. Mr. Dooley talks about their grazing and crop rotation tactics, highlighting the "gifts" that Mother Nature frequently gives and what they do to work through them.

One of his key stories is turning a flooded corn field into an oat and turnip field and being able to feed 80 cattle for three weeks on 65 acres on that field. Wade says with cover crops, timing is everything.

Warren Weibert, Feedyard Consultant with Decatur County Feed Yard, shares his family's story of building and developing a feedlot. Mr. Weibert focuses on the philosophy he took in 1980 to consciously work directly with ranchers on retained ownership of calves.

Warren's key take aways: You cannot manage what you do not measure, and people in the beef trade will have to focus on thoughtful, consistent delivery of predictable eating experience to our eventual consumer.
