Schumer joins push to ‘close loopholes’ for NY organic dairy farmers

WASHINGTON (WWTI) — The county’s top Democratic leader has joined the push to support organic dairy farmers in the Northeast. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer announced that he is urging Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to close “loopholes” for dairy farmers following the termination of 89 organic dairy farm contracts with Horizon Organics. The Senators are requesting that Vilsack close the loopholes around the term “organic,” strengthen enforcement, and support both small and mid-sized organic dairy farmers.

Your game plan for Expo 2021

The first World Dairy Expo in two years kicks off tomorrow, and exhibitors, attendees, presenters, and staff are excited to be back in action for the cattle shows, educational sessions, trade show, and more. While much of the event will be familiar to those returning, there will be some changes and new opportunities to look forward to. Here’s what you should know if you’re planning to travel to Madison.

The Myth of Regenerative Ranching

The purveyors of “grass-fed” beef want you to believe that it solves meat’s environmental problem. But this is merely a branding exercise, not a climate solution. When foodies sink their teeth into a slab of cheese from one of the historic dairy farms in Point Reyes, California, their minds probably run to grass-fed cows ranging free on the lush green oceanside hills of Marin County. Over 5,000 dairy cows and beef cattle roam the Point Reyes National Seashore National Park in full view of visiting tourists. Unlike the many dairy and meat companies that slap happy animals on their labels while sourcing their product from hellish factory farms, the dairy and beef farms at Point Reyes represent an agrarian ideal of ecologically and ethically sustainable animal agriculture.

World Dairy Expo underway

World Dairy Expo is back after missing a year because of the pandemic. Katie Schmitt is the Communications Manager for World Dairy Expo and says after a year off, visitors will notice some changes. Schmitt tells Brownfield, “People who come out this week are going to see a lot of the features that they know and love about Expo. You’re going to see the dairy cattle show. You’re going to see the trade show in new places like the trade center. You’re going to have the Tanbark, and it looks fantastic this year. It’s a great place to meet up with friends. You know, you’re still going to have youth contests that have happened earlier this week, but we’re going to add in Clear Connections on Friday morning and try to connect the next generation of dairy with hiring companies and farms so, really capitalizing on the connections and networking we know take place here at Expo.”
