“Cheese” will be the word on the streets of Madison, Wisconsin this April during the 2015 Wisconsin Cheese Industry Conference. More than 1,700 cheese industry leaders, suppliers and marketers will be meeting at the Alliant Energy Center on April 22 and 23 – and we will be there!
“The Cheese Show,” as many of us refer to it as, is the perfect place for those in the cheese industry to learn more about the latest in technology, discuss industry issues and network with others in the dairy world.
Right in the center of the expo floor is the Ideas Showcase, where attendees can check out free, short presentations on innovations in dairy plant quality assurance, dairy plant automation, cheese equipment & processing, and whey equipment & processing. Nelson-Jameson will be featuring “Dry Cleaning in Dairy Plants” with Scott Boersma, Business Development Manager from Nilfisk Industrial Vacuums on Wednesday, April 22 at 1:30-1:50.

Here in Wisconsin it is easy to drive through the countryside during the winter and not think too much about the busy days that are whirling by on the many farms dotting the landscape. Perhaps because everything is covered in a seemingly peaceful, uniform blanket of white, or maybe because you’re simply too busy praying to make it through another white-knuckled ride across slippery roads and highways, one can tend to be focused on other things.
The fact of the matter though, is that underneath the peaceful veil of winter lives a flurry (pun completely intended) of activity on the farm, ensuring that there is always food waiting at our next stop on our journey, or waiting for us when we get back home. Though crops may not be in the ground or herds out in the fields munching on fresh grass, farming is an all-seasons activity.
With this in mind, Nelson-Jameson will be putting a few miles on the roads this winter, getting to a variety of farm-related shows, meetings, and conferences in the coming months. If we are in your neck of the woods, please be sure to stop by and see us to discuss your farm-related needs…for all seasons! Or be in touch and let us know what we can do for you!

IAFP (International Association for Food Protection) Annual Meeting will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana; August 3-6, 2014. As always, Nelson-Jameson will be attending. The conference’s various educational symposiums provide information on current and emerging food safety issues, solutions to new and reoccurring problems, and the opportunity to network with other food safety professionals from around the world.
With thousands in attendance this has become one of the leading food safety conferences worldwide. On Sunday through Tuesday hundreds of exhibitors will be featuring items that represent the latest in cutting-edge innovations in food safety-technology.
At our booth we are excited to show the attendees some of the following items: Thermo-Buttons (small, accurate data loggers to measure temperatures anywhere in the plant, lab or trucks), the Check-Set™Thermometer Calibrator (used to verify the temperature reading of any of your thermometers), allergen test kits (quick, easy and accurate), the newly expanded metal detectable offering, and the wide array of color-coded items with the new mystery color to unveil (you will have to stop by our booth, #379, to see what that is).
Dates and locations to keep in mind for future IAFP meetings; July 25-July 28, 2015 held in Portland, Oregon and July 31 – August 3, 2016 in St. Louis, Missouri. We hope to see you at IAFP Annual Meeting in August!
