Midwest Dairy Association District Meeting Dates Approach

Dairy farmers are invited to Midwest Dairy Association’s Minnesota Division District Meetings beginning Wednesday, Jan. 4, and continuing through April. Twenty meetings are scheduled, each of which will include a report from the dairy farmer board member serving the district, along with an update from staff and a complimentary meal. 

County American Dairy Association groups may also conduct business in conjunction with the meetings. Several locations will also include Minnesota Milk Producers Association Dairy Management Workshops. Dairy farmers may attend the meeting closest to them, regardless of the district in which they live. No RSVPs are required.

 

District meetings are a chance for dairy farmers to learn how their checkoff investment is spent and ask questions of the board members they elect to manage the program. In 2016, Midwest Dairy launched an initiative called Dairy 3 for Me, for which more than 10,000 pledges were made by people who recognized the importance of getting three servings of dairy each day for good health.

The meeting presentation will explain how Dairy 3 for Me applies to the farm families who make those three servings available, how dairy partners are helping to champion the importance of dairy, and how the community and country benefits from dairy.
