From Jim Mulhern, President and CEO:

“We congratulate Donald Trump on his election as the 45th president of the United States, and look forward to working with the Trump Administration on issues that will help strengthen the U.S. economy, provide regulatory clarity to those in agriculture, and expand opportunities for America’s dairy farmers.

“In the coming months, we will share our views with the White House and cabinet-level agencies – as well as members of the Senate and House – on strategies that will help achieve these goals. We must strengthen the safety net for dairy farmers here at home, grow markets for farm exports abroad, and ensure that pro-farmer policies are in place in areas including labor, environmental regulation and taxes.”


The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF), based in Arlington, VA, develops and carries out policies that advance the well-being of dairy producers and the cooperatives they own. The members of NMPF’s cooperatives produce the majority of the U.S. milk supply, making NMPF the voice of dairy producers on Capitol Hill and with government agencies.
