About our sponsors

Telling the story of dairy’s next great chapter through technology and collaboration — Presented by IFCN and Vyla.

Vyla is part data platform and part catalyst for a transformative dairy movement. Vyla is the thread that connects the farm, the supply chain and the consumer in the interest of elevating the industry. Along with like-minded organizations like IFCN, Vyla intends to arm farmers and other dairy stakeholders with meaningful information to inspire the type of change that can elevate their operation and the industry together.

Vyla recently launched its first application, an on-farm tool called Ascend. The tool is designed to bring the farm’s disparate tools and insights into a singular location on a mobile app. Ascend is the first of an ambitious two-year roadmap that will see similar tools created for processors, retailers and consumers. Sponsored by leading dairy companies Nestlé, Land O’ Lakes, Lely and an emerging smart-motor company Turntide, Vyla seeks to tell a new story forward backed by data and factful transparency.
