Effective legislative and regulatory advocacy is a cornerstone of FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative’s mission and vision. This key membership benefit appeals to dairy farmers to become a member of FarmFirst to ultimately enact positive changes to legislative and regulatory policies that effect their ability to farm.

Receiving guidance from members through our public policy process and our board of directors, FarmFirst staff work directly with and through the Midwest Dairy Coalition and National Milk Producers Federation to get our policies passed by Congress and signed into law or included in regulations.

As FarmFirst continues to build on the foundation its built while advocating on federal and regional issues, there is still much more to be done in the weeks ahead, and far into the future.
