Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/04/2016

The Dairy Business Milk Marketing Cooperative has joined the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, the only trade association dedicated to promoting the interests of America's farmer cooperatives in Washington, D.C.

"We are thrilled to have DBMMC join NCFC and our network of cooperatives," said NCFC President and CEO Chuck Conner. "In the current political atmosphere, having a seat at the table in Washington is vitally important. Through the direction and strength of our members, NCFC is able to provide a powerful voice on those issues unique to farmer co-ops."

John Pagel, president of DBMMC's board of directors, said joining the council will provide the co-op's farmers with more influence on critical national policy items.

"DBMMC is proud to have joined NCFC to better represent our farms on issues such as trade and labor," Pagel said. "Through our new collaboration with NCFC and their members, we hope to see better outcomes for farmers throughout our region."

The Dairy Business Milk Marketing Cooperative provides milk testing verification services, market information, and representation on dairy-related federal policies to its members in Wisconsin and seven other Midwestern states.
