Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show on August 18 will offer information on the changes dairy and beef farmers continue to face in their sectors based on production pressures and influence from consumer trends.
“At this digital event, we’ll talk about what’s impacting production today and look at strategies to help dairy and beef farmers in their operations,” says Doug Wagner, President of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show. “We have some unique and informative industry speakers to talk about current topics.”
One hot topic for consumers this year is around the ‘buttergate’ question in Canada. Speaker Meagan Murdoch, Vice President, Financial and Professional Services + Agriculture, Hill + Knowlton Strategies, will share her experience in helping New Zealand farmers manage this issue, and her thoughts on how the Canadian dairy industry can best navigate this issue moving forward and regain the trust of consumers.
Speaker Brad Gilchrist, Beef Marketing & Product Specialist with Semex, will address the emerging trend of dairy farmers breeding part of the herd to beef sires with an overview of the beef-on-dairy industry and trends that he is seeing.
