Early registration is now available for the Animal Agriculture Alliance’s eleventh annual Stakeholders Summit, to be held May 2-3 in Arlington, VA. This year, the Alliance’s showcase event will explore the theme of “Real Farmers Real Food: Celebrating Tradition and Technology”.

The Summit is a one-of-a-kind conference that is attended by a diverse group of decision makers, including representatives from farms, ranches, food processors, restaurants, grocery stores, legislators, universities and government agencies. The Alliance welcomes Tom Brand, executive director of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting, as the 2012 Summit moderator.
