Dairy MAX Hosts Educational Webinars with Industry Experts
While the pandemic continued to disrupt the world in 2021 Dairy MAX utilized webinars as well as existing communications to reach dairy farmers throughout our region. As the new year approaches, Dairy MAX will continue hosting these webinars covering a wide range of topics focusing on the dairy industry and checkoff programs. Most recently, William Loux, senior director of Global Trade Analysis for the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC), joined a Dairy MAX webinar to give insight into the state of the International Dairy Market.

USDEC and Dairy MAX are valued partners that work together in the broader scope of the checkoff program. USDEC, which represents the global trade interest of U.S. dairy, works to provide strategic long-term growth of the U.S. dairy products in foreign markets. Today, milk from 1 in 7 trucks leaving American dairy farms ends up in products and ingredients sold overseas, making exports a vital growth path for farmers and processors alike.

“Our dairy farmer’s support of exports and the experts at USDEC are instrumental to the sustainability and growth of dairy in the Dairy MAX region," Marty McKinzie, Dairy MAX vice president, industry image and relations said. "Through our webinar and our team’s dairy farm visits we want to share the value of USDEC to the farmers who work tirelessly to supply the sustainable and nutritious dairy foods throughout our region."
