NEXUS Provides Showcase for Innovative Ideas and Technologies for the Dairy Industry
Five finalists will be selected to present at 2021 PDPW Business Conference
DAIRY NEWS – The newest addition to the annual Professional Dairy Producers® (PDPW) Business Conference will provide a showcase for the most innovative and groundbreaking ideas and technologies to improve processes, sustainability and profitability in the dairy industry. The inaugural Nexus stage will provide five companies with an opportunity to present to leading edge dairy farmers in a facilitated forum.
“As dairy farmers, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our farms and ensure they are sustainable for future generations,” said Katy Schultz, Tri-Fecta Farms, from Fox Lake, Wis., and president of Professional Dairy Producers®. “The Nexus stage will provide a high-profile opportunity for innovative companies to share the next generation of ideas and technologies with farmers at the dairy industry’s premier educational event.” 
Applications are due February 1, 2021, and can be submitted on the PDPW website. A selection committee will determine five companies to present during the NEXUS showcase on March 17 and 18 at the PDPW Business Conference at Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells, Wis. The five finalists will be notified by February 15.
On the Nexus stage, each company will have 15 minutes to present an overview of their innovative ideas or product, then an additional 5 minutes to take questions from dairy farmers in attendance.
“We look forward to receiving entries from the dairy community as well as from startups and companies from outside our industry,” said Schultz. “Nexus is the perfect way for a new company or entrepreneur to receive feedback from progressive dairy farmers and to connect with leading researchers and professionals from across the industry.”
Entries and finalists will be highlighted in PDPW publications and trade media.
