Help with bxslider javascript issues

I am need of some help with the following webpage:

http://winnersdrinkmilk.com/30Dairies/

I am having difficulty getting the slider to function properly.

The page should work as follows:

- In the green bar, there will end up being 30-31 dairies. The dairies need to be clickable, when clicked on, information will appear in the center of the page detailing that dairy, that will then allow you to go to an html page that has already been created.
- The arrows need to control the thumbnails sliding left and right.


Issues:
- Right now, the page is a mess in terms of functionality.
- Currently, the arrows (which are both on the left... and need to be one on the left and one on the right) control the content at the top of the page, while they should make the thumbnails slide left and right.
- The thumbnails are all image. I would like for the text below the thumbnail to be within the html and not within the image; however, I cannot figure out how to do this.
- Needs to work in ie9, and I have no way of checking anything in IE9
- Would love for the content in the middle of the page to be editable rather than an image, but cannot figure out how to best set this up to make it work. We are dealing with quite a bit of content (30+ dairies) so I am wondering if the information should be housed externally and called from the html file.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We are on a tight deadline with this, so any feedback would be fantastic. THANK YOU so so much!!!!!!

A bit overwhelming. Sounds like custom scripting rather than answering a question.
I will take a look, but no promises.

/30Dairies/jquery.bxSlider.min.js

gives a 404

and you load jQuery twice - once in the head and once here:

<!-- jQuery library (served from Google) -->
<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<!-- bxSlider Javascript file -->
<script src="js/bxslider/jquery.bxslider.js"></script>
<script>
$('.bxslider').bxSlider({
  pagerCustom: '#bx-pager'
});

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

Here is a start to make sure that the slider works the way you need it to

FIrst style that, then we can continue - I however recommend you to find another slider instead of making this one show cations. It is not designed to do so

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>30 Dairies in 30 Days</title>

<!-- bxSlider CSS file -->
<link href="js/bxslider/jquery.bxslider.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<!-- bxSlider Javascript file -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/bxslider/jquery.bxslider.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
  $('.bxslider').bxSlider({
    pagerCustom: '#bx-pager'
  });
});
</script>
</head>

<body class="main">
<!--main content begins here-->
  <ul class="bxslider">
    <li><img src="js/bxslider/images/slide-1.png"/></li>
    <li><img src="js/bxslider/images/slide-2.png"/></li>
  </ul>
  <div id="bx-pager" class="container_24"> 
  	<a data-slide-index="0" href="allwrightfarm.html"><img src="js/bxslider/images/thumb-muncie.png" /></a> 
    <a data-slide-index="1" href=""><img src="js/bxslider/images/thumb-albion.png" /></a> 
  </div>
<!--main content ends here-->

<div class="footer">
  <p class="container_24">©2013 Brought to you by the American Dairy Association of Indiana, your Indiana Dairy Farm Families.</p>
</div>
</body>
</html>
