New Animal Protein Seminar added to offerings at Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit; leading experts from Informa Economics, others to address outlook for animal protein markets

DANVERS, Mass., April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new full-day Animal Protein Seminar will be offered for the first time this year at the 9th annual Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit (Summit), which will be held October 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, La. This pre-conference seminar is fashioned after the popular Spring Livestock, Meat, Poultry and Dairy Conference previously organized by Informa Economics, and will provide attendees with an outlook, delivered by industry experts, for the cattle, hog, dairy, poultry, and egg sectors.

The seminar will be offered on Tuesday, October 7 and is open to all registrants of the Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit. Space in the seminar is limited, and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

This new animal protein outlook event was born out of a recently established alliance between HighQuest Partners, host of the Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit, and Informa Economics that has Informa rolling their Spring Livestock and Fall Outlook conferences into the Summit.  As a result, the Summit, which annually convenes buyers, sellers, and global players in the oilseed, protein meal, vegetable oils and feed grains sector, will feature richer content and more diverse networking opportunities.

Senior commodity analysts from Informa and others will be on hand at the Animal Protein Seminar and Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit to provide their expertise and strategies for addressing the opportunities and challenges facing the livestock, poultry, oilseed, and grain sectors in the coming year. Particular focus will be placed on the impact that shifting global demand and higher price expectations will have on the livestock-derived product markets in late 2014 and beyond. 

"The expectation for substantially increased prices—the biggest jump some of these markets have ever seen—is of particular concern to buyers," said Informa Economics Senior Vice President Rob Murphy. "Through a historical review, assessment of the driving factors, and guidance provided for strategic plans, attendees at this seminar will gain the knowledge required to effectively navigate this high-price environment."

Beyond key sessions on the global outlook for the cattle, hog, dairy, poultry and egg sectors, the seminar will provide critical insights into trends in the global downstream meat market and the implications of government policies on the animal protein production sector.

The Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit is the largest annual industry event of its kind. Attendees have the opportunity to share the latest information on trends and developments in the oilseed and feed grains markets while networking with their peers, and establishing relationships with new suppliers and clients in order to enhance their competitive edge. Attendees hail from around the world – the 2013 event in Minneapolis, Minn., included over 75 exhibitors and hosted nearly 650 attendees from more than 30 U.S. states and 25 countries.
