Wednesday’s DairyLine broadcast gave us a preview of the sixth annual Downes-O’Neill Dairy Outlook conference June 17-18 in Chicago. Broker, Dave Kurzawski, reported that it’s a chuck full program that will cover everything from global weather and energy, to grains, to the dairy market outlook and overall general economy.
The keynote speaker is Dennis Gartman, editor of the Gartman Letter, a daily update on the political, economic, and technical events of the day.
The conference attracts producers of all sizes, according to Kurzawski, “anybody whose bottom line is sensitive to the prices of commodities,” and he expects a lot of interest, especially with the economy in the way that it is right now.
He adds that it is not a hedge recommendation or risk management kind of conference, although it will be covered briefly, but Downes-O’Neill brokers will be on hand to answer any such questions.
