The Missouri Dairy Association (MDA) applauds Governor Jay Nixon for signing the Missouri Dairy Revitalization Act of 2015 into law.
The Governor signed the Act at Edgewood Dairy, near Purdy, Missouri, owned by MDA member Charles and Melissa Fletcher, before a crowd of 200 dairy producers, local FFA students and industry representatives.
“We thank the Governor for recognizing the needs of maintaining a local milk supply for all Missouri consumers and our processing industry by helping Missouri’s dairy farmers with their risk management program,” says MDA President Lloyd Gunter, a dairy farmer from Conway, Missouri. “This represents an accumulation of work over the last eight years by MDA to educate our state’s elected leaders and gain the support of many of Missouri’s mainstream agriculture organizations."
