New NMPF leader urges dairy farmers get more engaged

New NMPF leader urges dairy farmers get more engaged
Incoming National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) president Jim Mulhern urged NMPF members to become even more engaged in the organization and the policymaking process during his remarks at the organization's annual meeting. Mulhern will take over as NMPF president and CEO on Jan. 1, 2014, when long-time leader Jerry Kozak retires.
Mulhern also stressed the need for increased transparency in the dairy industry. He said transparency requires telling stories about brands and product categories and entire industries.
On other subjects, Mulhern said once the 2013 farm bill is enacted, NMPF should tackle reform of the federal milk marketing order system and consider addressing some changes to federal identity standards for dairy foods – but only if they benefit farmers.
