Discussion With Dairy Farmers on How to Improve Low Milk Prices
Date: November 16, 2018 11:30 AM
Milk Price Discussion
Sen. Bernie Sanders' office invites Vermont's dairy farmers to share their ideas on improving low milk prices. Our dairy farmers are struggling due to a prolonged period of low milk prices. While the newly improved Margin Protection Program has helped ease short-term cash flow problems for some farmers, a long-term solution is desperately needed to boost milk prices and ensure the viability of dairy farming in our state.
This staff-led discussion is an opportunity for farmers to weigh in on what policies they think are needed to improve milk prices and farm income.
Lunch will be provided.
WHEN: Friday, November 16; 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
WHERE: St. Albans Elks Lodge; 10 Gricebrook Road; St. Albans, Vermont
DETAILS: Please RSVP by Nov. 14 to Erica Campbell in Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Burlington office at 802-862-0697 or Erica_campbell@sanders.senate.gov
