GREEN BAY - Former MLB commissioner Bud Selig has been tapped as a featured speaker at the 2018 Dairy Strong conference.

Selig will address hundreds of dedicated members of the U.S. dairy community gathered Jan. 17-18, 2018, at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center, in Madison, WI, for the fourth annual Dairy Strong conference.

This past January, more than 700 people from across the country listened to dynamic speakers, engaged in panel discussions and explored educational programs that focused on a wide range of issues affecting the dairy community.

Dairy Strong organizers are working hard to build content that parallels the opportunities and challenges faced by dairy farmers today. Topics, speakers and other exciting updates will be determined and announced in the coming months.

Selig will serve as the opening keynote speaker for Dairy Strong. Selig held the position of commissioner for a historic 17 years. He is also the former owner of the Milwaukee Brewers and a Milwaukee native. During his tenure, Selig navigated numerous controversies in the baseball community and will call on his leadership experience to draw parallels to challenges in the dairy community.

Dairy Strong provides attendees the chance to listen to unique keynotes, participate in practical sessions and engage with the nation’s leading dairy suppliers on the trade show floor.

“Dairy Strong brings farmers and dairy professionals from diverse management philosophies together to coalesce around what’s important to our community – today and in the future,” says Mike North, president of the Dairy Business Association. “We work hard to provide content that is cutting-edge, inspiring and entertaining.”
