Rep. Duffy to Co-Chair Congressional Dairy Farmer Caucus
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/13/2017
Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy has been chosen by his peers to serve as co-chair of the bipartisan Congressional Dairy Farmer Caucus. The group is made up of federal lawmakers dedicated to educating other members on the importance of the dairy
industry to the nation's economy. The caucus will also work to maintain and strengthen the relationship between leaders in Washington and the dairy industry.
"My new role on the Dairy Farmers Caucus will allow me to be even more involved in the policy affecting one of the biggest industries in our state," Duff said. "I'm proud to be supported by state and national dairy groups on my new position, and I look forward
to working with them and my colleagues in Congress for the benefit of all Wisconsin farmers."
The Congressional Dairy Farmer Caucus was initially started in 2006 to provide a bipartisan forum, involving both House and Senate members, to collaborate on policy issues that addressed the interests of dairy producers nationwide. It was revitalized in 2009
after milk prices hit record low levels that year.
Retired Wisconsin Rep. Reid Ribble also served as a co-chair of the group back in in 2015.
