Recognized were Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa; Senator John Hoeven of North Dakota; Senator Tina Smith of Minnesota; Rep. Jim Costa of California; USDA’s Deputy Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services Brandon Lipps; and Lorren Walker, chief of staff at USDA’s Office of the Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs.

Those recognized “display outstanding leadership and support for the industry through their work on federal policy matters,” the association said. “Dairy is so present and important to the wellbeing of Americans that it’s our duty to stop and give thanks to those whose leadership has contributed to a healthy dairy industry,” said IDFA Pres./CEO Michael Dykes.

Jerry Dakin’s cows have produced milk that helped feed families across the state for decades. Now, the longtime Manatee County dairyman has been recognized as Florida’s Farmer of the Year.
