Looking for a Dynamic Speaker to Speak About Stray Voltage on Dairy Farms

We are planning GBFW 2014 in Elmwood next January.  As part of our Dairy Day Program we would like to have a dynamic speaker to address the topic of Stray Voltage on Ontario Dairy Farms - Prevalence, Causes, Symptoms and Solutions.  Anyone have any ideas for great Speakers for this subject matter?  I appreciate your help!  (Dairy Day will be January 10, 2014.)

-do U have the speaker firmed up yet?

-if not; please contact me via email as I know of a new group affiliated with the college of Agriculture at the university of Guelph who are involved in studying solutions for ON Dairy farm stray voltage issues that may be a great fit for this venue

Hi Yolanda. 

Thanks so much for your response.  We do have two speakers coming on Dairy Day - Jan 10th to speak to this subject matter.  They are Brent Royce and Lorne Lantz.  They were referred to us by Farm and Food Care.  Thanks so much though!!
