Dairy farmers and processors talked about milk pricing and the Federal Milk Marketing Orders during a weekend forum in Kansas City.
Lucas Sjostrom discusses Federal Milk Marketing Order Forum with Brownfield’s Larry Lee
American Farm Bureau Federation organized the discussion, and Lucas Sjostrom with Minnesota Milk appreciated how the format encouraged discussion. He tells Brownfield, “American Farm Bureau did a great job at putting us at very diverse tables, and it was very interesting hearing what everyone’s top issue was, and how much we maybe didn’t care about the top issue for the person across the table.” Sjostrom says, “I think that really helped us think about what our problems are and how to solve them collectively.”
Farm Bureau’s Chief Economist is Roger Cryan.
