Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/11/2014

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture is once again planning a Livestock and Genetics Export Seminar in Madison this April. The April 9 event takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Sheraton Hotel. The day will include educational sessions and time for networking.

Speakers will provide tools and techniques for exporting livestock and genetics. Participants will gain greater understanding of the regulations and logistics for exporting livestock and genetics.

"This popular seminar will feature new speakers and cover a variety of topics, including technical information needed to enter the export market," said DATCP's Enrique Gandara. "Exporters will learn what they need to know to take advantage of market opportunities in new parts of the world."

Topics will include importance of building relationships when making sales, coordination and complications of embryo export, understanding export protocols and regulations, and an overview of export logistics.

Farmers and representatives from small to mid-sized agribusinesses should plan to attend. Information provided will be helpful for those seasoned in, or new to exporting.

Wisconsin ranks second in the nation in the export of bovine semen, with the top export destinations being the United Kingdom, Brazil and China.

Registration is required. There is a $25 cost to attend, which includes lunch. For more information, call 608-224-5113.
