DAIRY DAY ON CAPITOL HILL — As part of its summer board of directors and Young Cooperators meeting, the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) hosted its annual reception on Capitol Hill for its members, congressional representatives, and other guests on June 11. The reception drew a record attendance and featured visits from several members of Congress, including one by Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., who gave a short speech to the group about the farm bill.
