The opening session at 9:30 a.m. will be led by the 66th Alice in Dairyland Kristin Olson. She will discuss the importance of telling agriculture's story and share her experiences from her position as the state's agricultural ambassador.

At 10 a.m., Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) Livestock and Meat Specialist Jeff Swenson will speak about the history and importance of meat animal agriculture in Wisconsin. He will include how livestock body types have changed to meet consumer demand.

DATCP's Dennis Foelker, DVM, will lead a session on biosecurity at 10:45 a.m. He will discuss how to keep show animals healthy and precautions livestock breeders can take to minimize disease risk.

Finally, at 11:30 a.m. Alexis Nickelotti, Director of Online Communications for the Wisconsin Beef Council, will cover how social media can be used to bridge communication from the farm to the city. She will share how the Council is using social media tools to educate consumers and how everyone can get involved in the effort.
