BREMMER FEATURED IN AMERICA’S DAIRYLAND SOCIAL MEDIA INITIATIVE
Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board and Discover Wisconsin team up to shine spotlight on
state’s dairy industry
Madison, WISCONSIN – (March 15, 2017) – The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board and Discover Wisconsin have teamed up to shine the spotlight on the state’s dairy industry through a series of social media videos. The first video, which launched March 15 online at facebook.com/discoverwisconsin, features Kim Bremmer, a Greenwood resident and the owner and founder of Ag Inspirations.
The mission of the “America’s Dairyland” social media series is to highlight the faces that represent Wisconsin’s dynamic dairy industry.
“This “America’s Dairyland” series offers an opportunity to meet the people who call Wisconsin home and strive to educate, advocate and make the milk used for Wisconsin dairy and cheese. Wisconsin is full of people who are passionate about the dairy industry and those showcased in this series are just a few of the wonderful people connected to America's Dairyland,” said Patrick Geoghegan, Senior Vice President of Communications for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
Bremmer launched Ag Inspirations as a vehicle for farmers to share their stories and to better connect people with where their food comes from. Bremmer, in addition to being the owner and founder of the company, is a self-described dairy enthusiast and science junkie. As both a speaker and blogger, Bremmer covers issues relevant to today’s dairy farmers; topics range from GMOs to antibiotic use on farms.
“No two farms in Wisconsin are the same and yet they are all so important,” said Bremmer. “It’s their diversity that is a major cornerstone of the dairy industry’s success.”
The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board and Discover Wisconsin are set to release two more videos as part of the America’s Dairyland social media series. A story about the Spierings—a young family in Wisconsin that faced adversities following the establishment of their farm in 2013—debuts in April. In May, the series will premiere a story about Juan Quezada, who joined Milk Source in Kewaunee as a milker in the 90s and climbed the ranks to director of safety, recruiting and training.

Hazard statement added to inoculant products with enzymes for additional end-user safety
MILWAUKEE, WI – March 16, 2017 – Lallemand Animal Nutrition is committed to best practices and safety at each level of product manufacturing and application. For this reason, the company has voluntarily added a hazard statement to minimize the potential risk to some individuals while handling certain silage inoculant products. The statement notes the enzymes in selected products are, for some people, an allergen.
“While this change is not required by regulatory authorities for any of our North or Central American products, the information is required by some other regulatory authorities, such as the EU, and so we as a company felt it is our responsibility to all our customers adopt the highest standards globally when it comes to the safe handling of our products,” says Bob Charley, PhD. Forage Products Manager, Lallemand Animal Nutrition.
Starting this year, Lallemand Animal Nutrition silage inoculants containing enzymes, including the market-leading Biotal® and Sil-All® brands, will include the following information on product labels:
May cause allergy or asthma symptoms or breathing difficulties if inhaled. Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Wear respiratory protection. IF INHALED: Remove person to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If experiencing respiratory symptoms: Call a POISON CENTER/doctor.
Dr. Charley notes that the product formulations are unchanged, as are the recommended precautions when handling these products.
“We have always recommended that anyone handling these products should do so in a well-ventilated area, wear gloves and avoid inhaling the product particles or fumes,” he says. “Producers understand the importance of safe practices around all products and equipment used on farming and livestock operations. We simply want to provide all of the information they need to work with their teams to ensure everyone returns home safely to their families each night.”
For more information, contact your Lallemand Animal Nutrition representative.

A cover-all barn collapsed at about 6:40 p.m. at Howard and Deborah Young's farm at 836 Dietsche Road, according to officials. There were roughly 250 cows inside, but most of them survived, according to Howard Young.
The collapse destroyed between 200 and 300 feet of building and trapped about 30 cows, according to the family. Several of the animals were killed instantly and several others had to be put down. No humans were hurt, they said.
The family said the Tuesday storm that dumped several feet of snow in the region brought strong wind shears to their property. The snow wasn't a major factor in the collapse, they said, because it slid "pretty easily" off of the barn roof.........
U.S. dairy leaders are in Mexico City, so we created this one-stop resource page where you can find all the information you need about the trip, and more.
MEXICO CITY -- Leaders of three U.S. dairy organizations traveled to Mexico this week to send a unified message of reassurance that the business partnership that has served both countries for so many years will continue.
Tom Vilsack, CEO and president of the U.S. Dairy Export Council, joined Jim Mulhern, president of the National Milk Producers Federation, and Michael Dykes, president and CEO of the International Dairy Foods Association in Mexico City.
We created this page as a one-stop resource where you can get all of the content related to the Mexico trip.
In photo below (from left to right), Mulhern, Vilsack and Dykes give one of several joint interviews to media organizations covering the event..........
“We have always seen Mexico as a partner first and a customer second,” U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) President and CEO Tom Vilsack told Mexican dairy leaders attending the National Dairy Forum in Mexico City. “That’s why we intend to continue working with you and your industry to expand the consumption of dairy products in a way that benefits both countries.”
“Mexico is our friend, ally and most important trading partner,” said Jim Mulhern, President and CEO of the National Milk Producers Federation. “Our goal this week in visiting Mexico is to communicate our steadfast commitment to our partnership with the Mexican industry, even as we continue to explore ways to deepen that relationship by working on issues of mutual benefit.”
“The United States proudly provides the majority of imported dairy products to Mexican consumers,” said Michael Dykes, D.V.M., President and CEO of the International Dairy Foods Association, which represents dairy food companies and their suppliers. “We strongly believe that it’s in the best interest of both countries to preserve and enhance our excellent trade relationship, now and in the future.”
Vilsack and Mulhern spoke at the Femeleche conference here, which brought together Mexican dairy industry leaders, farmers and government officials. As part of the coordinated message of collaboration and partnership with Mexico, the three CEOs of the leading U.S. dairy policy organizations are also meeting with a variety of government officials, including the Mexican Minister of Agriculture and the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico.
The reassurance from U.S. dairy leaders comes during a time of political uncertainty on both sides of the border.
Since NAFTA became law in 1994, U.S. dairy exports to Mexico have more than quadrupled to $1.2 billion. That makes Mexico the U.S. dairy industry’s No. 1 export market, accounting for nearly one-fourth of all U.S. dairy exports last year.
Put another way, exports to Mexico require the milk of 345,000 American cows. They create approximately 30,000 U.S. jobs, according to USDA, and $3.6 billion in U.S. economic impact.
