WALKERSVILLE — The Maryland Farm Bureau Dairy Committee, chaired by Myron Wilhide of Keymar, will conduct a milk marketing and pricing forum at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at Walkersville Fire Hall, Frederick County.
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss alternative milk-pricing strategies and examine the possibility of creating a state pricing structure similar to those in neighboring states to stimulate the shrinking dairy industry.
Featured speakers include John Keeling from the American Farm Bureau Federation; Carol Dubard, a minority consultant to the Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy and Poultry; Ed Coughlin from the National Milk Producers Association; and Charles Shaw, U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The forum is open to the public.
