Monona Terrace, Madison, WI

The Dairy Business Innovation Center, the UW-Madison College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection are partnering with a national organization, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), to host a conference about energy efficiency and sustainability in agriculture in February 2010. 

This will be the third annual ACEEE Forum on Energy Efficiency in Agriculture, but the first to be held in Wisconsin. The conference will spend one entire day day exploring Profitability and Environmental Sustainability in the Dairy Industry. We will kick off with a Wisconsin cheese reception at the Monona Terrace on the evening of Feb 9, 2010, and then commence with an all-day series of speakers, workshops and trade show exhibits on Feb. 10.

Attend and learn about how you can achieve greater profitability by implementing environmentally sustainable practices on your farm or in your processing plant. Also hear what others are doing around the country to improve energy efficiency, enhance sustainability and help reduce dairy’s greenhouse gases.
