2014 NMPF Activities and Accomplishments Report Now Available
April 9, 2015
NMPF’s latest Activities and Accomplishments Report is available on the organization’s website. Published annually, the report is an account of NMPF’s actions and achievements on all the issues it faced in the previous year.
The 2014 report covers the enactment and implementation of the Margin Protection Program – the most significant rewrite of federal dairy policy in a generation – as well as NMPF’s efforts to press dairy-friendly policies in the areas of trade, immigration, the environment, and food safety. In addition, it covers efforts to strengthen NMPF’s animal care program, rejuvenate the REAL® Seal, and continue the export assistance program Cooperatives Working Together, which played a key role in helping U.S. farmers amid 2014’s steep, worldwide dairy price decline.
In an introduction to the report, President and CEO Jim Mulhern said NMPF last year “achieved precisely the focus, effort, and accomplishments that I had in mind when I became President.”
