This years’ keynote speaker is Dr. Michael Hutjens from the University of Illinois.  Dr Hutjens will be speaking on two topics, ”The Role of Forages for a Profitable Operation”, and “Lessons Learned from a Challenging Season”.  Dr. Hutjens has won awards from the Illinois Milk Producers, Holstein Association and the University, but he is also very active in all forms of media.  You can watch him on YouTube, iTunes, Webinar, catch his blog on Dairyline.com, read his articles in Hoard’s Dairyman, and on Googlebooks, and even watch his presentations online.  The Ontario Forage Council welcomes Dr. Hutjens to Ontario, an enthusiastic speaker with information that you can put to use immediately.
