Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced last Friday that the first meeting of the Dairy Industry Advisory Committee will be held April 13-15 in Washington, D.C., and it's open to the public. IDFA President and CEO Connie Tipton has been invited to make a presentation during the meeting on April 14.
The committee, announced by Vilsack last August, was established to review farm milk price volatility and dairy farmer profitability. Of the 16 committee members, three represent IDFA member companies.
