Dairy farming is not a nine to five job. Many would sum it up as a passion, lifestyle and livelihood. Ohio alone has 268,000 dairy cows across 2,931 dairy farms, ranking the state fifth in the nation in milk production plants and 11th in overall milk production.
Also home to several large scale yogurt, cheese and ice cream manufacturers, Ohio is largely responsible for fueling both our state and the nation's strong appetite for dairy products.
Karen Bakies, nutrition affairs director, American Dairy Association (ADA) Mideast, will talk about nutrition, products, trends, innovations, research, and the overall benefits of dairy at the monthly Northwest Ohio Ag-Breakfast Forum, July 18, 8-9:30 a.m.
The program begins at 8:30 a.m. with informal networking prior, hosted by the Center for Innovative Food Technology at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation, north of Bowling Green on Ohio 582, just west of Ohio 25.
On behalf of dairy farmers, ADA Mideast provides science-based nutrition information to, and in collaboration with, a variety of stakeholders committed to fostering a healthier society, including educators, school nutrition directors, health professionals, academia, industry, consumers and media.
The Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum is an educational networking opportunity to provide information on current issues, trends and programs available to the agricultural community and those who support its advancement.
The cost is $10 per person (cash or check at the door) which includes breakfast and networking opportunities.
