“Let’s Get Started” webinars

Dairy Business Innovation Alliance

Learn about economic development financing and exporting resources

The Dairy Business Innovation Alliance (DBIA), a partnership between the Center for Dairy Research (CDR) and Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA), is wrapping up its “Let’s Get Started” webinar series. There are only two webinars left in the series, taking place January 5 and January 19.

These free webinars are geared towards companies interested in starting or expanding an export program along with dairy farmers and processors interested in farm diversification or developing high-value dairy products. The DBIA program is open to anyone, but the webinars will focus on resources available in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

The webinars include a combination of general information presentations, breakout sessions and interviews with farmers and processors who will share their experiences and lessons learned. The breakout sessions will cover resources available in each participating DBIA state (Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin).

“The DBIA webinars have provided invaluable resources and connections,” said Casey Sutliff of Taste and See Creamery, Boyceville, WI. “I have already utilized resources suggested and put into place business changes based on the training I’ve received.  Each door that has been opened through this program is a blessing that will continue to serve our family farmstead creamery for years to come.”

DBIA hopes to see you in January and wishes everyone a very happy holiday season!
