2013 WCIC Record Attendance

CDR and the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association joined in co-hosting WCIC, April 17-18, 2013 in La Crosse, Wisconsin. More than 1,400 U.S. dairy and cheese industry staff were in attendance for two days of sessions, expos and more.

CDR led three sessions this year including the general session on biofilms, which was led Dr. John Lucey and Dr. Mark Johnson. Dr. John Lucey, Dean Sommer, KJ Burrington and Dr. Karen Smith participated in a discussion of the Wisconsin whey opportunities group report and recommendations. KJ Burrington, Dr. Dana Wolle and Mike Molitor participated in the discussion on yogurt and cultured products. CDR also hosted a hands-on cheese grading workshop Thursday afternoon, led by Marianne Smukowski, Dr. Mark Johnson, John Jaeggi and Luis Jimenez-Maroto.

It was a busy week for all involved but, as always, WCIC provided many opportunites for education and networking. We hope you will join us again next year.
