IDP's Leman to participate in Indiana Trade Mission to Asia
It is with much anticipation that IDP's executive director, Doug Leman, looks forward to traveling with Lt. Governor Ellspermann on the June 2014 Agriculture Trade Mission to Asia, a tremendous opportunity for IDP! IDP was invited to represent the dairy industry in Indiana and the IDP board was behind this 100%. A group of around 25 will be traveling to Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. Doug's goals on this trip are to learn what might be available to enhance the Indiana dairy industry, understand what products they are interested in, and also to build relationships both home and abroad to further IDP and Indiana dairy farmers' cause. If you have any thoughts or suggestions for Doug, please contact him at 317-695-8228. This entire trip is possible because of tremendous supporters! A special thanks to Hubbard Feeds, Milk Specialties, US Dairy Export Council, American Dairy Association Indiana, Dairy Farmers of America, Foremost Farms, and JBS United for providing sponsorship. Doug hopes to return with many pictures, a meaningful report, new knowledge, and lots of great memories!
