Raw Milk Action Needed


The Department of Agriculture has amended the raw milk rules and sent them on to the Legislative Rules Review Committee for a hearing, to be held on July 9th at 9:00am CT/8:00am MT.

While we appreciate the Department taking out some of the worst aspects of the proposed rules, there are still many problems that need to be solved before they are approved by the legislature. Help us in asking the Legislative Rules Review Committee to vote “no” on the proposed rules and send them back to the Department of Agriculture.

Here is a letter you can send to each legislator, along with an informational letter with their snail mail and email addresses. Letters should be mailed by the end of this week and emails by Monday, July 8th.

Additionally, you can attend any of FIVE hearing locations July 9th. You must be at your chosen location 15 minutes prior to the start of the hearing to sign in. If you plan on attending, please email Sabrina at sabrina@dakotarural.org, so we can help you with your testimony and details for the hearing.
