The Animal Agriculture Alliance’s Stakeholders Summit is set for May 3-4, 2017, in Kansas City, Mo. With the theme of “Connect to Protect Animal Ag: #ActionPlease2017,” the conference will build on the 2016 Summit’s focus of taking action to secure a bright future for animal agriculture. Speakers will give the audience actionable solutions to take home and implement on their farm or in their business.

The conference is an opportunity for farmers, ranchers, processors, association executives and anyone who has a vested interest in producing or communicating about the production of meat, poultry, milk and eggs to connect with fellow industry stakeholders. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in engaging discussions and hear out-of-the-box ideas of how we can work together to take on the challenges facing animal agriculture.

The agenda is taking shape and promises to once again offer an outstanding lineup of speakers. Nina Teicholz, investigative journalist and author of The Big Fat Surprise, will be the keynote speaker. Leah McGrath and Amber Pankonin, both dietitians, will present on dispelling myths about food. Rex Martin and Madlyn Daley with Dairy Management Inc. will share about the consumer confidence research conducted in the dairy industry and how they’re using this knowledge to better connect with consumers in the “moveable middle.” The event will be moderated by Tyne Morgan, host of the U.S. Farm Report.
