This last week Cherney Microbiological Services, Ltd. participated as a vendor in the 2014 International Cheese Technology Expo (ICTE) in Milwaukee, WI. The 3-day event gave the cheese makers throughout the world a chance to showcase their products & skills, learn of the latest technological advances, and meet or spend time with their friends throughout the dairy industry. We would like to thank all those who stopped by our booth to talk or introduce themselves for the first time. Although the highlight of the event was the time spent with colleagues during the receptions and sampling the award winning cheeses, the many attendees gave us a chance to reflect and look towards the future of this great industry!
Governor Scott Walker shared with those in attendance history on the state of Wisconsin and in particular the impact that the dairy industry has had in the state. The Governor’s speech left the industry with a sense of pride and positive outlook for the future. The awards ceremony on Wednesday evening gave all the deserving participants a chance to enjoy their much deserved time in the spotlight.
As appreciation for all those attending, we provided an opportunity to win a weekend getaway package to Door County, WI. The weekend will start with a tour of our lab in Green Bay followed by an enjoyable weekend for two. The winner of the Door County getaway was drawn by Stewart Larsen on Monday April 28th and (drum roll please……) the winner is Kaia Viney from MCT Dairies! Thanks to all that participated and join me in congratulating them. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you again next year.
