Jim Ostrom, co-founder and partner of Milk Source, will present "Large Scale and Sustainable" as part of St. Norbert College's CEO Breakfast and Strategy Series on Tuesday, Jan. 14, from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at Butte des Morts Country Club in Appleton. The session sponsor is New North.

Ostrom has been president and CEO of Milk Source and its affiliated companies since 1994. Prior to 1994, he spent five years in corporate sales and real estate development. His experience with dairies under Milk Source's management has helped him develop business methods including a unique hedging strategy, which allows Milk Source to continue to expand its dairy operations while reducing risk.

Milk Source began 18 years ago with 180 cows, and today milks 27,000 cows and owns an additional 16,000 throughout Wisconsin.

Milk Source produces 200,000 gallons of milk per day, enough milk to supply 1.4 million households with a gallon of milk per week. Milk Source is approaching $150 million in annual sales.

The CEO Breakfast and Strategy Series is an outreach to the business community by the Office of the President at St. Norbert College, featuring presentations by distinguished local, regional and national business leaders.

The registration fee for this session is $60. For more information, or to register, contact St. Norbert College at http://tickets.snc.edu/tickets, email jamie.mcguire@snc.edu or visit www.snc.edu/ceobreakfast.
