DBMMC provides opportunities and resources for our members to engage with policymakers at all levels of government. The dairy community must speak up for itself, or our opponents will be more than happy to talk over the silence.
Dairy’s voice needs to be heard and received on all issues affecting our community, whether that is at the town hall, county boardroom, state capital or in Washington, D.C. It is important for our members to individually participate where and when they can. Lawmakers and regulators need to hear directly from the people and businesses that their decisions affect.
Having people in power who understand modern agriculture and dairy farming is equally important, and there is no better person to fill that role than our members themselves. We understand that time is precious. There are opportunities to make a difference even if you can spare just a few minutes. From simply reaching out to your government representatives to running for office yourself, there is a chance for everybody to contribute to dairy farmers’ continued success.
DBMMC’s future successes will depend on your involvement. Opportunities for individuals and farms to get more involved with policy and government affairs include:
