USDA seeks nominees to the National Dairy Board

The Secretary of Agriculture will appoint 12 dairy producers and one importer to serve 3-year terms beginning Nov. 1 and ending Oct. 31, 2020. The selected representatives will replace board members whose terms expire Oct. 31.

Among the regions seeking nominees will be Region 10, which includes Tennessee and Virginia and Alabama, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico and South Carolina.

The secretary will appoint two members for Region 4 and Region 6, and one for each of the remaining regions and the dairy importer position.

USDA established the 37-member Board under the Dairy Production Stabilization Act of 1983. Since 1966, Congress has authorized the establishment of 22 research and promotion boards that are industry-funded and empower agricultural industries with a framework to pool resources and combine efforts to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets, and conduct important research and promotion activities. AMS provides oversight, paid for by industry assessments, which helps ensure fiscal responsibility, program efficiency and fair treatment of participating stakeholders.
