Dairy Farmers Commend Ag Committee for Including Dairy Reform in 2012 Farm Bill

Dairy Farmers Commend Ag Committee for Including Dairy Reform in 2012 Farm Bill

"On behalf of Dairy Farmers of America, Inc.'s (DFA) Board of Directors and management, we commend Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Sen. Pat Roberts and all the members of the Senate Agriculture Committee for their effort to improve federal dairy programs for U.S. dairy farmers. By including provisions of the Dairy Security Act in the Agriculture, Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012 (Farm Bill), the committee has taken an important first step in truly reforming the dairy safety net, providing producers the tools they need to remain competitive in the global market and facilitate the industry's growth and long-term sustainability," John Wilson, senior vice-president of Dairy Farmers of America said.

"Since the devastating dairy economy crash of 2009, dairy farmers, industry organizations and cooperatives including DFA have worked to develop a new system that better protects the interests of producers in a highly volatile industry.

"The dairy provisions included in the Farm Bill provide producers options to protect their margins and the ability to strengthen exports, both of which will be instrumental in maintaining the vitality of the U.S. dairy industry. We appreciate the support of the committee and look forward to fighting for the bill's passage on the Senate floor."
