Dairy Together, a movement to rebuild a viable dairy economy for family farmers and rural communities, will be hosting events across the country in the coming months. Called the Dairy Together Road Show, these events will educate dairy farmers and industry stakeholders about several potential pathways toward market stabilization.
The events are being organized by the National Farmers Organization and Farmers Union organizations from Wisconsin, New England, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, California, and the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union region, with support from the National Farmers Union and Holstein Association USA.
The groups will present research on plans that consider federal milk order system reform via a structured dairy pricing program as well as avenues of oversupply management through an updated version of the Dairy Market Stabilization Program that was considered in the lead-up to the 2014 Farm Bill. Recognizing the urgency of the situation dairy farmers are facing, they also plan to unveil plans for short-term emergency relief.
