Avery to speak at Western Dairy Management Conference
If you're attending the Western Dairy Management Conference in Reno, Nev., March 11 to 13, don't miss Dennis Avery's presentation, "Dairying: Light at the End of the Tunnel?" March 11. Avery will speak during a reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m., sponsored by Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health.
"Dennis Avery is an expert on global food issues and an award-winning environmental economist," says Terry Hanson, National Dairy Sales Director, Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health. "Dairy producers will learn things they don't hear in the trade press and will be encouraged by Mr. Avery's positive message about agriculture."
During his one-hour presentation, Avery will share new information about the benefits of high-yield agriculture, the contributions agriculture has made to the environment, the ability of U.S. farmers to feed the world and the light at the end of the tunnel for dairy producers.
Dennis Avery is the Global Food Issues Director for Washington's Hudson Institute. He is the author of two best-selling books, including Saving the Planet with Pesticides and Plastic: The Environmental Triumph of High-Yield Agriculture and Unstoppable Global Warming Every 1,500 Years.
