FRESNO, Calf. — The National Dairy Producers Organization Inc. held an official signing of the Contract with Producers during its first meeting at the World Ag Expo in Tulare, Calif., Feb. 8-10.
Broadcast on a national conference call, producers, spectators and media were invited to join the meeting, where chairman Bill Rowell addressed the purpose of the grassroots organization and the recently released Contract with Producers that was dispersed to the audience.
The audience were invited to share their inquisitions during a closing question-and-answer session.
One spectator suggested that this is the first step to fixing a malfunctioning marketplace. “Don’t stop,” he pleaded with the board.
Since the national meeting, several statewide meetings have spurred continued interest and communication with producers in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
