An OEFFA 2018 Conference preview

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association’s (OEFFA) 39th annual conference, A Taste for Change, will run Thursday, Feb. 15 through Saturday, Feb. 17 at the Dayton Convention Center in Dayton.“The conference is three days of learning, networking, sharing, and breaking bread with an inspiring and growing community of farmers and local food advocates,” said Renee Hunt, OEFFA Program Director. “Each year, we draw more than 1,200 attendees, and our diverse schedule offers something for all tastes.”Friday keynote speaker is Jeff Moyer, a world renowned authority in organic agriculture. He conceptualized and popularized the No-Till Roller Crimper and wrote Organic No-Till Farming. He is the Executive Director of the Rodale Institute, which helps farmers make the transition from conventional, chemical-based farming to organic methods. He is a past chair of the National Organic Standards Board.“This country is in the midst of a food fight in both the production world and the consumer world,” Moyer said. “As consumer demand for organic grows, there is a lot of pushing and pulling on the food dollar in the marketplace. Right now the organic food industry is around 5% of the food dollar in the United States, but only about 1.2% of the farmland in this country is being farmed organically.”Moyer says the result of that data is that a lot of organic product is coming in from international or offshore enterprises. He is working very hard to change that scenario and encourage more farmers to transition to organic to take advantage of an opportunity to be more profitable and at the same time improve the health of the soil and change the way that resources are being managed on the farm.AUDIO: The Ohio Ag Net’s Ty Higgins visits with Jeff Moyer of the Rodale Institute about organic agriculture, how it can be a great starting point for beginning farmers and what he hopes attendees will take away from his talk at the upcoming OEFFA Conference.Rodale Institute Jeff Moyer ShortSaturday keynote speaker Stacy Malkan is an author, journalist, and leading consumer advocate for safer products. Stacy is co-founder and co-director of the nonprofit group U.S. Right to Know, whose mission is to educate and inform consumers about the often hidden practices that shape the food system. She served as media director for the 2012 ballot initiative in California to label genetically engineered foods.Find out more about the OEFFA Conference 2018, February 15th – 17th, in Dayton.last_img read more

Taking Off the Training Wheels

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now The first time buyers and users of your product or service or solution will be disappointed by the challenges and limitations of what you sell. Because they lack experience, they are easily frustrated, and they are susceptible to being wooed away by a competitor.The second time they buy, they will believe that the first company they bought from was the obstacle to success. They will likely choose to buy from a larger company, considering it a safer choice. Many buyers will experience the same challenges and limitations when using the larger company, repeating the experience and becoming more discouraged.Some of the people and companies who try the product or service or solution will give up, concluding that it doesn’t work—or at least it doesn’t work for them. However, a good many will try to find someone who can make things work.The third time they buy looks an awful lot like the second time. If the largest and the alleged “best in the world” failed them, then the second largest company might be better because they try harder. When this decision fails the buyer, they start to look again for the right partner.At this point, the contacts and the company are ready for a real partner, having already become familiar with the systemic challenges and issues in buying and using your product or service or solution. They have a more mature understanding of their needs, and because they recognize the constraints of using what it is you sell, they are willing to look at making adjustments themselves and are infinitely more flexible when it comes to accepting how you deliver things to overcome the challenges they’ve experienced.You may not want to be a new buyer’s first experience. You may not want to be their second or third experience either. It might serve you better to focus on displacing your competitors, taking their unhappy clients away from them after your competition has educated them on your industry, your solutions, and the reality of the constraints that afflict all of you.Win customers away from your competition. Check out Eat Their LunchMature buyers have more realistic expectations and are more inclined to work with you. You want to be the one who takes the training wheels off, not the one who puts them on.last_img read more

Simmons’ triple-double lifts Sixers over Pistons

first_imgStronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion MOST READ Detroit trailed by four after a 6-0 run late in the fourth, but an awkward-looking hook shot by Andre Drummond missed everything, and the 76ers were able to close out the game.“It’s mind boggling to have two games in a row where we weren’t ready to play. We have to figure out a way to fix that, whether those five guys can boost the intensity or if we have to change the lineup,” Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. “I’m going to take the blame for Simmons.

The people mopping the floor were pretty busy trying to keep it dry in the second half, and 76ers coach Brett Brown said he was glad nobody was hurt.“You can appreciate our reaction when you see Joel Embiid slip and slide and then hold his knee,” Brown said. “And then 30 seconds later, Jerryd Bayless goes down and starts holding his hip. We’ve experienced a lot of injuries. It’s not anybody’s fault. It just happened.

Milan’s Belotti bid considered ‘unsuitable’

first_imgTransfers Belotti was Milan target, but Torino considered Niang proposal ‘unsuitable’ Last updated 2 years ago 19:01 9/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments() Andrea Belotti, Torino, Serie A, 27082017 Getty Images Transfers Milan Torino Serie A The Rossoneri were among those to express an interest in the striker, but their efforts to put a part-exchange deal in place were knocked back AC Milan’s efforts to include M’Baye Niang in a part-exchange deal for Andrea Belotti were considered “unsuitable” by Torino.The Rossoneri were among those to express an interest in the Italy international striker as they embarked on an elaborate summer recruitment drive.Milan 9/1 to beat Lazio 1-0 Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Belotti’s €100 million release clause was widely reported throughout the window, but that only applied to foreign interest and could not be triggered by Milan.As they sought to find a way around that issue, those at the San Siro endeavoured to use Torino’s interest in Niang as a bargaining chip, but negotiations soon broke down as it became clear that no agreement would be reached.Club director Gianluca Petrachi said on the Torino Channel: “It was a bit of a soap opera.“He [Niang] always wanted to join us, partly because of the bond he has with Sinisa Mihajlovic, and he even turned down an offer from Sampdoria.“[President Urbano] Cairo gave me the all-clear to negotiate with the Rossoneri, but they tried to use Niang as part of their bid for Belotti. The offer was unsuitable.“I was the one who insisted on keeping the two issues separate. We are trying to build a stronger Torino and selling Belotti for €50-60m would not have achieved that.“We want Belotti to be paid for what he is worth. If the lad wants to challenge himself at Champions League clubs, then we can talk about that in future.”Belotti netted 28 times for Torino in all competitions last season, sparking interest inside Serie A and further afield from the likes of Chelsea.He has also found the target three times in as many games in 2017-18, with the speculation surrounding his future appearing to have had little impact on his focus.last_img read more
