Fly control, dairy nutrition and policy will be the lead topics at the upcoming Missouri Dairy Forum and Trade Show Jan. 27 to 28 at the University Plaza Hotel in Springfield.

"This is an excellent opportunity for dairy farmers to get together and hear some timely issues affecting their everyday operations," says Missouri Dairy Association President Larry Purdom of Purdy, Mo.

The guest speaker for the Jan. 27 luncheon will be Gene Goenner of Alltech, who will speak on "A Practical Look at Feeds and Feeding for Optimal Rumen Performance."

After the luncheon, Randy Mooney, chairman of the National Milk Producers Federation, speaks on "Dairy in the 2012 Farm Bill."

The Forum continues with MDA's 27th Annual Meeting and committee meetings of the Missouri Holstein Association and Missouri Guernsey Breeders Association.

The trade show concludes at 5 p.m. and reopens Jan. 28 at 7 a.m.
