The Dairy Business Association and Edge Dairy Farmer Cooperative launched a new podcast — “Dairy Stream” — in February that opens a door to dairy’s many dimensions.

The podcast topics range from emerging technology and customer trends to government policy and innovation in conservation practices.

“There are so many moving parts to our dairy community, and those parts are moving incredibly fast today as the industry experiences dramatic changes. We want to help our members, customers and lawmakers make sense of it all and empower them to take control of their future,” said Tim Trotter, executive director of DBA and Edge.

First episode

The first episode of the podcast, sponsored by DBA member STgenetics, zeroed in on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement and other trade opportunities along with the possible effects of this year’s election on agricultural policy. The featured guest was Michael Torrey of Michael Torrey Associates in Washington D.C., a veteran of Capitol Hill’s political, legislative and regulatory environment who represents Edge.

Meet the host
“Dairy Stream” is hosted by Mike Austin, an award-winning agricultural radio and television broadcaster of more than 40 years in America’s Dairyland.

“I am excited to be part of ‘Dairy Stream,’ which will be an important venue to provide farmers with information valuable to the sustainability of their farming operations,” Austin said, “and also to provide answers and insights to their customers about what they are doing to ensure an affordable and safe food system.”

How to listen
“Dairy Stream” can be found at and DBA’s YouTube channels. You can also subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify.
