“DAIRY FARM FAMILY 



CRISIS HEARING




Tuesday, July 24, 2018


9 am to 5 pm


Lairdsville Fire Hall


143 School Lane, Lairdsville, PA 17742


For decades Federal and State Government officials have failed dairy farm families at all levels. 90% of our dairy farmers have been eliminated in the past 50 years by Federal Dairy and "Free Trade" policies that have put local family dairy farmers at an economic disadvantage, leaving our rural communities in shambles with a collapsed dairy farming infrastructure and our local milk and food supply in jeopardy. 


FWU is sponsoring this public hearing to give afflicted dairy farmers, impacted members of the rural business community, and beleaguered consumers an opportunity to speak out about the long history of the dairy farmers' economic crisis, the current desperate situation playing out right now on dairy farms and in rural communities across America, and the long-term dairy policy changes that must occur if family dairy farmers are to stay on their farms to produce fresh, local milk for consumers and to support a vibrant, local rural economy.

Guest Speakers, presentations, and opportunities to be heard and pick up information will be available from 9 am to 5 pm. (Lunch will be available to purchase.) 


To participate or for more information
