"Producer-to-producer" learning takes center stage among a diverse line-up of speakers and topics at the 2014 PDPW Business Conference, March 12-13 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.

The conference, hosted by Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin (PDPW), features five keynote speakers and 16 specialty sessions, along with an expanded Hall of Ideas and Large Equipment Show. Among the sessions offered, eight will include producer panelists sharing their diverse experiences.

"Producers enjoy learning from other producers because it makes industry research and theories real," says Mark Diederichs, dairy producer from Malone,. and president of the PDPW board of directors. "Amplifying producer voices is a strength of a producer-led organization like PDPW."

Specialty sessions featuring producer panels include:

· "21st Century Dairying: How to Select and Maximize Robotic Milking Systems," led by Jim Salfer of the University of Minnesota Extension. Salfer will share results from recent research on robotic milking on 52 dairies in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Two producer panelists will address common questions based on their experience with robotic milking: Chad Kieffer of Utica, MN, and Jake Peissig of Dorchester.

· "Corn ShredlageTM: Hype, Hip or the Next Biggest Thing?" This session will provide an overview of a relatively new type of corn silage, with nutrition expert Dr. Randy Shaver reviewing the research. Dairy producer Aaron Kutz along with Shredlage inventor and technical director Roger Olson will share experiences with this new process and the end results.

· "The Air of Profitability," led by Professor Brian J. Holmes. Dr. Holmes will present the freshest research on air quality and then moderate a panel discussion featuring the facility experiences of three dairy producers: Eric Hillan of Ladysmith, Paul Fetzer of Elmwood, and Roger Peterson of River Falls.

Beyond listening to speakers, producers who attend the 2014 PDPW Business Conference will have the opportunity to network with more than 1,500 other dairy producers and industry professionals from around the nation. The PDPW Business Conference has become a place for dairy producers to meet other producers, discuss ways to handle on-farm tasks and challenges, and stay informed on industry issues that require dairy producer leadership.

Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin is a dairy-producer founded organization that provides educational programs and services to fellow dairy producers. PDPW's mission is "to share ideas, solutions, resources, and experiences that help dairy producers succeed."
