Dairy advocates expressed their farm bill concerns to the House Ag Committee Chairman.
Lane Ruhland is the Government Relations Specialist for Venture Dairy Cooperative, which represents several large dairy farms. She told Chairman Glenn GT Thompson her members are concerned about possible farm bill language that would impact milk contracts and pricing in the existing Federal Milk Marketing Orders. “This might be a very good change for our members and the right thing to do, but we just hope that there is the necessary vetting of any specific language that would make any amendments to our milk marketing orders.”
Kevin Krentz is Wisconsin’s Farm Bureau President and helped establish American Farm Bureau Federation’s dairy policy priorities.
