Editor’s Note: September Newsletter Operating Instructions

September 6, 2023

For the second consecutive year, NMPF is devoting its September newsletter to updating members on progress made so far this year on crucial issues for dairy farmers and the cooperatives they own. While August has been a busy month for dairy – as you can see in our article updating the latest developments – Washington tends to take a slower pace in late summer because of the annual congressional recess. That makes Labor Day week a great chance to take stock of what’s been accomplished so far, before the hectic calendar of autumn takes hold and additional developments gather in speed and frequency, with a farm bill looming, critical legislation yet to pass and the Federal Milk Marketing Order process moving forward.

Here’s how to proceed: Start with the update, then work through this team-by-team update of NMPF’s work so far in 2023. We hope you find this account of challenges met so far this year to be useful. We look forward to more in the upcoming months. Thank you, again, for this opportunity to serve.
