Travelling from up to 6000 miles away, speakers from around the globe will educate Canadian dairy producers, as part of the Maizex Dairy Classroom program at the 2014 Canadian Dairy XPO (CDX).

Speakers from 6 countries, including Canada, will take the stage both days of the XPO. The Maizex Dairy Classroom will be equipped with surround sound, 2 jumbo screens, seating for 500+ and full French translation services. Andrew Dellava, Marketing Manager for Hoards Dairyman, will again be returning as the honourable MC for the 2-day program. “We saw dairy producers, industry and media attend the program in 2013 and the coverage post CDX was exceptional” says Andy. “Generally speaking, dairy producers in Canada are viewed by their American producer counterparts as being early adopters of innovation and hungry for knowledge.”

Branded the Maizex Dairy Classroom, attending dairy producers can now see speakers both days from 10am – 2pm. Maizex saw the elite Dairy Classroom program as a way to give back to the vibrant Canadian dairy industry. “We like the fact that the education program is included in the price of general admission for attending producers. When you look at the distance these speakers are traveling and their experience and expertise, the value proposition is second to none” states Maizex President Dave Baute. “Please take the time to attend a portion of the program, as this calibre of speakers may never be in the same country and under the same roof again.”

The stage will also host the highly anticipated Global Dairy Summit Meeting, an international panel of progressive dairy producers from around the planet discussing global dairy trends and management solutions, while interacting and answering questions from Canadian producers in attendance. This portion of the program is proudly supported by Shur-Gain / Nutreco, who has again stepped up to support knowledge transfer at CDX.
