The FC Stone/Downes-O’Neill annual Outlook Conference takes place June 9 and 10 in Chicago with the theme “Make Mine With Everything.” Dairy broker, Dave Kurzawski, said in Wednesday’s DairyLine that the theme sums up what the conference will be about.
“In our increasingly inter connected world, the price of commodities is dependent upon a wider range of factors than ever before,” Kurzawski explained. The conference therefore will address dairy, feed grains, meats, livestock, soft commodities, interest rates, currencies, precious metals, global weather patterns, as well as upcoming legislation, and regulations that will influence agriculture.
The conference will have a wide reaching range of information, he said, plus some focused presentations on risk management but attendees will include everyone from dairy producers to multinational food corporations, he said, so you can go too in depth with risk management strategies in a conference made up of such a diversity of people but it’s helpful to put these people together and they will come from throughout the country and the world.
