TO: Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue,
It is time for all of the “dairy industry” to share in the current U.S. economic pain, NOT JUST THE DAIRY FARMER.
NDPO urges the suspension of the mandatory milk checkoff deduction from U.S. dairy farmers for 18 months — the anticipated duration of the effects of the current virus pandemic.
The requested suspension of the mandatory checkoff tax, allowing dairy farmers to receive more of their earned milk money, will go a long way in financially supporting every remaining U.S. dairy farm family.
