<\!s>Young Entrepreneurs Track: The key to a sustainable dairy industry is engaging and inspiring that next generation of dairy farm owners and managers to prepare themselves to move our dairy farm businesses forward. Breakouts will focus on issues pertinent to those young entrepreneurs and youth considering dairy careers. A special Young Entrepreneur Reception will be held the evening of Feb. 11.

<\!q>Technology and Innovation Track: Is your smart phone your favorite tool on the dairy? Learning how to use that device more effectively is just part of this track that addresses the latest innovations and ideas that can advance your dairy operation.
