Dr. Mandi McLeod traveled from her home in New Zealand to speak at our 2011 Symposium in Lexington, Kentucky. She has a wide range of experience as a dairy and agri-business consultant in the dairy industry and has worked in Russia, China, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. She covered disruptive changes in New Zealand's dairy industry and strategies for meeting those challenges.
Educational presentations are just one part of Alltech's Symposium. Attendees and presenters alike benefit from less formal opportunities to discuss ag topics and meet old and new friends from around the world. Just before heading to the airport, Dr. McLeod spoke with me about the Social Media discussion dinner that she attended and the benefits that farmers can gain from using social media to communicate with the public.
Please pardon the post-symposium chaos.
