Millennials are game changers in food production

I recently had an opportunity to attend Cracking the Millennial Code, a conference hosted by the Animal Ag Alliance in Crystal City, VA. It was an excellent, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who does programming in agriculture and/or food. It  was a great way to learn how Millennials prefer to receive information, what they want the message to be, food and meat trends, relationships with producers, and much more.

I wanted to share a great article that recaps the event by the Washington Post with you.

Also, in the article you will notice a graphic. The Animal Ag Alliance had hired a graphic artist. This amazingly talented man would listen to each speaker and create a graphical representation of that talk! Here are a few photos I took of his work.

Such a fun way to capture the major themes of a session.
