Introduce coalition members and our issues to key federal and state policy makers and educate them about ADC’s objectives and why our objectives are so critical to the future of dairy farming in the United States
Real-time updates to coalition members on critical federal policy changes, regulatory rules, and farm situations
We are the voice of progressive dairy farmers in the nation.
We are an industry organization led by farmers. This ensures that those most affected by governmental policy have a vehicle to protect their interests and ensure the growth and future livelihood of the industry. The American Dairy Coalition focuses on federal dairy policy. Successful policy-making, in order to best serve our industry, must start in Washington. We focus only on top priority issues in order to remain nimble and quickly adapt to the ever-changing federal policy-making environment. To ensure the dairy industry’s voice is heard, a consistent presence on a federal level is vital, not only to make sure the right policies are passed, but to ensure they remain protected from activists' attempts to overturn them.
Attention All U.S. Dairy Producers Impacted by Negative PPDs
All Dairy Producers and your Dairy Advocacy Trade Associations are invited to add your names on a letter to the Presidents of the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) and International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA). In this letter, we ask them to work with you to address the issue of depooling that has resulted in negative PPD deductions from milk checks. In many cases, dairy producers were left unable to utilize risk protection tools such as DMC and DRP if they had purchased them- leaving many producers with no way to shield themselves from significant financial loss. The current formula is not acceptable.
The goal of our letter is to ensure you have the opportunity to be at the table with NMPF and IDFA to find workable solutions for milk pricing.
Please view the final version of the letter here.
Feel free to share this with other producers and ask your state dairy associations to sign on as well.
Sustain a reliable stable workforce (a dairy guest worker program)
