We want to start off by thanking everyone who participated in this year’s Wisconsin Milk Haulers Association Convention in La Crosse, WI. This year the convention drew over 60 participants. The WMHA Convention could have not been possible without our sponsors and vendors, so we would also like to thank all of the companies for their support to this great association.
The first afternoon of the convention included a Board of Directors Meeting followed by a Welcome Reception that featured a big line up of tasty hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail bar. We began the next morning with a breakfast buffet and headed straight into our educational seminars. Topics ranged from a State Agricultural Legislative Update, Fluid Milk Product Permit Update & Milk Tanker Inspection Demonstration, which were presented by State Rep. Lee Nerison, the DOT and WI DATCP.
Attendees then marched out to the Truck Show to marvel at all of the trucks companies brought and conversed with exhibitors. A pulled pork lunch accompanied by snacks and drinks was provided by Stainless & Repair and River States Truck and Trailer (thank you for stepping up and surprising us with this meal!) Our convention ended with another round of delectable appetizers and refreshing cocktails. We then all sat together for a plated steak meal. The night ended with a raffle. A T.V. was up for grabs along with gift certificate, sweatshirts, hats, koozies and more. Overall, the convention was a big success!
