During the recent National Association of Farm Broadcasters convention the Dairy Farmers of America exhibited during their Trade Talk session. This provides farm broadcasters with an opportunity to interview representatives and learn about what’s new with their company or organization. I spoke with Jackie Klippenstein, VP, Industry and Legislative Affairs.
Jackie says that priorities for DFA include making sure new legislators are familiar with the needs of dairy farmers. She says the industry lost some long time supporters in the recent election. Looking ahead she says that dairy farmers need farm policy reform quickly and cites margins as the biggest challenge facing them.
