Video, Sec. Vilsack Discusses Dairy Policy

Categories: Farm Bill

From DairyHerd.com, Oct. 2, “Tough times in the dairy industry are not lost on U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack.

“Speaking to a World Dairy Expo gathering on Tuesday, Vilsack acknowledged there have been ‘significant price spikes and very deep depressed prices’ in recent years.’ And the time interval between those spikes is shortening so that producers don’t have the time to rebound from difficult years, he added.

“Against that backdrop, he expressed frustration at the inability of Congress to get a new Farm Bill passed.”
