Slominski Calls for Policy Reforms that Support Producers and Growth

Mar 13, 2013

"IDFA has consistently supported reforms that help provide risk management tools for dairy farmers," Slominski said, naming margin protection as an example. The solution proposed by Reps. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and David Scott (D-GA) would offer support to producers without hampering industry growth, he concluded.
