Dr. Douglas Southgate, Jr. discussed demographic trends and the future demands for animal agriculture at the recent National Institute of Animal Agriculture Annual Conference in San Antonio.  His comments are featured this week at DairyCast.com with other presentations scheduled to come online in the next few days.

Here's the bad news... another report of animal mismanagement and ill-handling just out.  Bad actors must be identified and reformed by our industry, not by those wanting to shut us down.

DairyCast Update for March 11, 2011, Handing It Over To The Next Generation

An interesting conversation is highlighted from our recent trip to the World Ag Expo.  We discuss succession planning with Caroline Berry, Caroline Berry Consulting, who says, "Estate planning and succession planning are not the same.  I frequently talk with someone who tells me their accountant has 'all that' under control."  You don't discuss succession planning with your accountant.  You discuss it with your successors.

Listen to this important conversation about planning for the future of your business with Caroline Berry.  The entire World Ag Expo panel video is also available on DairyCast.

And check out some of the other conversations from the Dairy Exhibit barn.  We'll continue to bring you conversations from around the dairy industry in coming weeks.  Let me know what you think about them with an email to Feedback@DairyCast.com.
