NMPF Continues to Develop Foundation for the Future Program

NMPF’s major restricting of dairy policy, entitled Foundation for the Future, continues to develop momentum. The three subcommittees that are fleshing out details of the various programs – producer income insurance, production management, and Federal Order reform – have met repeatedly over the winter, and will continue to finalize details of their respective proposals.

The NMPF Board of Directors received a status update on the Foundation effort at its meeting last month, and directed the association’s staff to finalize the package in time for the next Board meeting in June.

The concepts behind the Foundation for the Future have been presented at several dairy conferences recently, including the Western United Dairymen annual meeting, the 2010 Wisconsin Dairy Policy conference, and the Dairy Farmers of America convention. In addition, Pennsylvania dairy farmer Lauren Mosemann will present a summary of the program at a House Agriculture Committee hearing April 20th in Harrisburg, PA.
