Happy Holidays!

To begin with, I would like to thank Matt Iager and CETA for putting on an excellent meeting in Montreal this year. I also thank all of you who filled out surveys after the conference. Your feedback provides the information we need to continue to improve our meetings. Congratulations to Dr. Pat Comyn and Dr. Clay Breiner as our newly elected board members. One of the highlights of the meeting for me was the opportunity to present the President’s Award to Dr. Richard Whitaker. Recognizing him for all he has done for this organization was such an honor. We wish him well in his retirement.

This past year has been an extremely difficult one for the dairy industry and I am sure it has had some effect on our businesses. There have been many changes to this industry (genomics etc.) and there will certainly be more in the future. The only constant is change. This organization provides us with a network to navigate through these changes.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve these past four years as a member of the board. It has gone by quickly and has been rewarding. There have been challenges in the past and there will be in the future, but you have elected an excellent group of board members to lead us in the future. The winter board meeting in going to be held the first weekend in March. If anyone has topics they would like us to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the board members.

I encourage all of you to be active in this organization. It is your organization. The interactions and experiences are invaluable. There are many opportunities to serve including being a board member, a committee chair, or committee member. This is the life blood of our organization.

Once again, thank you for allowing me to be your president in 2018.

John Prososki
AETA President
