Update for March 18th, 2009

Last week was a really great week at the The Western Dairy Management Conference (http://www.wdmc.org/) in Reno. And it was great not because of all the hospitality, ice cream and milk, but I felt that top to bottom it was one of the best slates of experts in the industry of any conference. It was also great to catch up with many of you and learn more about your operations and the challenges you are currently facing.

Hopefully some of the resources we will be providing over the next few weeks will help us all deal with these tough economic times and low milk prices. Be sure to begin our conversations from this event by clicking below on my talk with Ben Yale.

Drop me a message and let me know what’s on your mind: feedback@dairycast.com. I look forward to sharing several conversations on future programs here at DairyCast.com.

If you imagine in your mind, the irrigated agriculture of California you probably can see a large valve sticking out of the ground with a wheel on top situated in the middle of a massive field with deep furrows.
