Dairy Day at the Capitol is set for Jan. 21 and will be held in conjunction with our annual Dairy Strong conference. Dairy Day is about you!
Next year is an important year for Wisconsin animal agriculture. There are several proposals pending before a legislature expected to adjourn in March. Before they leave Madison for their homes and campaigns, they will consider legislation and rules that will impact the broader dairy community; legislation that will ensure labeling is truthful and transparent - milk is milk - and, policy that is both environmentally sensible and farmer friendly. Lawmakers need to hear from you on these issues and more.
Making 2020 even more important in Wisconsin, our state will be in the national spotlight as election season approaches – sooner than any of us like. The Democratic National Convention will be held in Milwaukee July 13-16. All eyes are on Wisconsin and agriculture has a powerful voice, now more than ever is the time to speak up.
Join DBA members and staff at the state Capitol in Madison, Tuesday, Jan. 21 as we discuss policy challenges and opportunities. Learn more and register at dairyforward.com
