U.S. To Host 2023 Idf World Dairy Summit In Chicago

The International Dairy Federation (IDF) and the U.S. National Committee of the IDF (US-IDF) announced Sept. 14 that the 2023 IDF World Dairy Summit will take place in October at Chicago’s famed McCormick Place conference center. NMPF staff are active in planning the summit, including through co-chairing it together with the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC).

The annual meeting brings together more than 1,000 participants from dozens of countries throughout the global dairy sector to discuss issues of common cause in safely and sustainably feeding the planet with nutritious and delicious dairy products.

Reflecting the theme of the 2023 meeting, “BE Dairy – Boundless Potential, Endless Possibilities,” the meeting in Chicago will showcase a diverse program that features global industry leaders, experts, scientists, farmers and more addressing the most significant issues facing the dairy sector today – from environmental challenges to dairy’s role in consumers’ diets to emerging technologies’ impacts on the sector.

The summit will be the first held in the United States since 1993 and will offer NMPF, its members, and its partners across the U.S. dairy industry a prime opportunity to showcase the nation’s excellent dairy farming and manufacturing practices and allow guests to sample high-quality American dairy products.

Sheep Farming: Mayhem On The Farm! /October 2, 2022

Video: Sheep Farming: Mayhem On The Farm! /October 2, 2022

At Ewetopia Farms it was total mayhem from the time we walked into the barn this morning until we left the barn tonight. We knew it was going to be a busy day because we were shipping our Suffolk breeding group today and we had people coming to look at rams and we had to bale all the hay we had cut on top of our everyday chores. And all those things happened plus we had five ewes lamb during morning chores which meant setting up temporary pens for lots of them since all our jugs are full again. We did get to see some lamb races as we did chores in the Coveralls which is always fun. We loaded the 38 Suffolk ewes and one ram on a trailer bound for western Ontario. We sold one of our favourite Dorset rams. We made a squeeze pen for the rams once Gladiator was removed from his breeding group and reintroduced to his former ram buddies. We had a ewe and lamb escape the jug. We had the tractor break down. We tattooed a ram and so much more! I hope you'll join us today.
