We just finished the first in a series of three seminars relating to application of the SPCC regulations at dairy farms. The seminar just completed was for Michigan Milk Producers Association in Cadillac, Michigan. We will be traveling to Chicago next week to speak with the National Milk Producers Federation – Environmental Task Force and to Columbus, Ohio the following week to speak with Dairy Farmers of America – Mideast Council.
I was a last minute fill in to co-present in Cadillac. It was a very attentive group with some great questions. I’m very excited to see how co-ops are integrating environmental issues into the training of their field staff and subsequently to their member producers.
We will post another update here next week following our presentation for NMPF with some additional news for dairy producers.
