Peterson says Safety Net for Dairy Industry is Crucial

The following article is an op-ed article from House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin C. Peterson, D-Minn. concerning the dairy industry and the issue of improving the dairy program. "It has been nearly three years since the combination of declining milk prices and escalating input costs devastated the dairy industry.

Current dairy programs are not keeping pace with the challenges facing today’s ...

U.S. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin C. Peterson, D-Minn., and Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, today introduced The Dairy Security Act of 2011.

Beardsley Water Towerin Big Stone County Dear Friends, While U.S. Senate Hearings dominated the headlines, I spent much of this week in Washington D.C. meeting with constituents who are focused on improving the infrastructure of their communities. I also welcomed the Premier of Manitoba to my office as part of the ongoing conversation surrounding NAFTA renegotiation and trade between Canada and the United States. On another trade issue, an agreement in principal was reached between the U.S. and Mexico which could have significant impact on our local sugar producers. I also met with many of our homegrown advocates and producers, including the National Young Farmers Coalition, the Minnesota Grain and Feed Association, and Minnesota Agri-Women. Finally, I’d like to congratulate all of the students graduating across the Seventh District on their accomplishments!  Sincerely,Congressman Collin C.

Big Stone County Dear Friends, This week I met with the American Association of Crop Insurers, AgQuest Financial Services, Minnesota Farm Bureau, the Organic Trade Association, and the Farm Journal Foundation to discuss methods to strengthen our rural economy and support those who work so diligently to feed the world.

A storefront in Lac Qui Parle County Dear Friends, It's been a busy week at home in Minnesota’s Seventh District, and I was honored to join Pelican Rapids in their Memorial Day event to recognize those brave soldiers who defended our freedom with their lives.

Sincerely,Congressman Collin C. PetersonMinnesota 7th District Memorial Day event Photo courtesy of Pelican Rapids Press On Monday I was pleased to attend the Pelican Rapids Memorial Day ceremony. With more than 400 people in attendance, the ceremony was a solemn example of a community coming together to honor our fallen heroes. When I served on the House Veterans Affairs Committee, I worked to encourage offices to display a black POW-MIA flag. These are now flown in nearly every office in Washington D.C. My hope is that this will help us remember
