If you are permitted to travel for business this winter and feel comfortable doing so, I hope you’ll consider joining me and the Trust In Food team at our fifth annual Symposium happening Feb. 14-16 in Nashville. This year’s theme is “Climate-Smart State Of Mind: Partnering For Progress,” a nod to the national conversation about advancing agriculture in a way that is responsive to our environmental needs while also honoring the progress and uniquely tailored needs of each producer in making decisions that make change on working lands.

In no particular order, here are three sessions with expert presenters you won’t want to miss:

Human Dimensions in Practice: Unveiling the 2022 State of Sustainable Ag in Row Crops Report And Exploring How To Overcome Barriers In Voluntary Conservation Adoption Among Producers

Advancing Dairy Sustainability In Wisconsin And Beyond

Over lunch on Feb. 15, we’ll hear from leaders across the dairy value chain who are operating with boots on the ground in Wisconsin to celebrate farmers’ sustainability progress and explore new opportunities. This session will feature experts including farmers, conservation nonprofits, dairy associations and food companies. Confirmed speakers include Michelle Rossman, Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy; Lauren Brey, Farmers for Sustainable Food; Jim Wynn, Lafayette Ag Stewardship Alliance; and Greg Siegenthaler, Grande Cheese Company.

Why U.S. Animal Agriculture Is Positioned To Lead With A Climate-Smart State of Mind

Beef, pork and dairy are capturing the national spotlight in conversations about the potential of agriculture to address a changing climate. In this closing keynote address, Merck Animal Health’s Judson Vasconcelos, director of veterinary and consumer affairs, will explain how animal agriculture can solve pressing social challenges, respond to consumer needs and help farmers, ranchers and trusted advisers including veterinarians thrive.

Seats for Trust In Food Symposium fill up quickly – if these sessions (or others on our agenda, which can be viewed online) can help your business advance its sustainability mission in 2022, sign up today. The in-person program won’t be recorded or available online.

I hope to see you in Nashville!
