The 2019 crop year has been a tough one for most of the country. Dr. Mike Hutjens tells us about it on this week’s Feed Forum Friday:
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Farm Workforce Modernization Act (H.R. 5038). The bill, the first House-passed agricultural labor reform since a comprehensive immigration plan in 1986, includes critical provisions to address dairy’s unique workforce needs. NMPF’s Chris Galen discusses the issue and also provides an update on the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement:
The 2020 PDPW Managers Academy for Dairy Professionals program is set for January 14-16, 2020 at the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel in Corpus Chrisi, Texas. The 3-day executive-level professional development training and networking program is designed for dairy owners and managers, CEOs, industry directors, processors, marketers and distributors. PDPW Executive Director Shelly Mayer has a preview on today’s Dairy Radio program.
