The Maryland Farm Bureau Dairy Committee is sponsoring a series of producer information meetings to review the Dairy Task Force's proposal to establish a Maryland Milk Commission.
The local meeting will be from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the Carroll County Extension Office in Westminster. Another meeting will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. that day at the Frederick County Extension Office.
Under current Maryland Farm Bureau policy, the group can only support establishing a commission if it is producer-approved. Each meeting will discuss the form and purpose of a Maryland Milk Commission.
"The purpose of these meetings is to give dairy producers every opportunity to understand the task force proposal," said Myron Wilhide, Maryland Farm Bureau dairy committee chairman and a Detour dairy farmer.
