One of the premier events in Indiana in 2010 will likely happen in January. It's the 2010 Indiana Livestock, Forage and Grain Forum. Organizers aren't bashful in billing it as the #1 Indiana agriculture educational experience in 2010. Mark down January 15, and plan to be at the Convention Center in Indianapolis for this all-crop, all-livestock event.
In the past, you may have attended one or both of the Indiana Livestock Forum and the Indiana Beef, Dairy and Forage Symposium. The two have joined forces to make one powerhouse meeting instead of two. Plus, soybean, horse, corn, forage, beef, pork, dairy, aquaculture and even other farm organizations have combined forces to support this program. There will something for everyone, and the meeting will turn out to be a comprehensive smorgasbord of in-depth looks at various hot topics in agriculture, organizers say.
Organizers promise a view of the future like you've never seen before, framed by outstanding guest speakers. This event will also feature what's expected to be a very large trade show. The word industry here for industry trade show refers to basically all aspects of livestock, corn, soybeans, livestock and much more.
Breakout sessions will allow state commodity groups participating in the day to hold annual meetings important to maintaining their progress and fulfilling constitutional bylaws. For others, choose from breakout speakers discussing a wide range of topics, from information on corn, soybeans, dairy, beef, pork, forages, horses and aquaculture. The topics were selected to provide a wide range of selection for a diverse audience with a wide range in interests.
Lunch is entitled a 'Progressive Experience'. The rest of the details about lunch haven't been released- sounds exciting!
Telling ag's story through the use of new social media will also be a topic at this meeting. Tips will be offered for those wanting to get the maximum effectiveness out of using Facebook, Twitter, testing and other forms of social media.
