NMPF: Senate deserves dairy farmers’ sincere thanks

National Milk Producers Federation President and CEO Jerry Kozak expressed his gratitude after the Senate voted to end debate on the farm bill.

“The Senate deserves the sincere thanks of dairy farmers nationwide for its overwhelming majority vote today to end debate on the 2013 Farm Bill. The decision to invoke cloture clears the way for approval of a much-needed reform of the federal dairy program when the Senate votes on final passage of the Farm Bill expected early next week.

“Dairy farmers have been waiting two years for Congress to approve the new dairy program. Thanks to today’s vote, they can look forward to the end of price supports and other Depression-era programs and the launch of a new plan that will insure them against losses when profit margins shrink to dangerous levels. This fight is not over, but a brighter future is in sight.”

That overpaid lobbyist Jerry Kozak can give his thanks to my manure lagoon! This new dimwit dairy plan that NMPF has shoved down our throats is a dream to a do nothing tongue flapper like jerry and his over paid buddies at NMPF. Hopefully the Tea Party will kill this in the House.
