Be a Part of Dairy Policy Reform

Dairy Policy Reform:  Finding the Right Path for New England Dairy Farmers
August 17-­19, 2010 with Chandler Goule, VP of Government Relations for the
National Farmers Union.  A Series of Forums in Sponsored by the New England Farmers Union and the Neighboring Food Co-op Association

Several plans are floating around Washington to reform federal policy. Which ones are gaining momentum, and what options look positive for New England farmers, consumers and the environment?

New England Farmers Union and the Neighboring Food Co-op Association are sponsoring these events with partners who care about the health of this important industry. Our guest will be Chandler Goule, Vice President for Government Relations for the National Farmers Union (NFU).

Before joining NFU, Chandler was the Staff Director of the US House of Representative’s Agriculture Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy and Poultry. Goule has spent over 11 years working on Capitol Hill in agriculture/ dairy policy. He represents NFU at all dairy related policy discussions in Washington, and has testified before the Dairy Industry Advisory Committee, and developed testimony for NFU delivered before the Senate and House Agriculture Committees. He will bring first-hand information about dairy policy reform options, and will gather information from you about what will work in New England.
