Dairy Producers of New Mexico
President's Letter
Luke Woelber
June, 2013

Summer heat is upon us and it is always amazing to me how the cows can perform when it is 100 degrees plus. Some producers have been lucky enough to receive some moisture while others are still waiting for a little gift from Mother Nature.

Over the past month we have asked for your help calling legislators to help push and pass the Farm Bill. We seemed to be gaining traction by getting it through the Senate but recently watched it fail to pass in the House. I begin to wonder whether we will see a Farm Bill or just another extension.

I would like to thank all of you that attended the Annual Convention in Ruidoso.
If you did, I hope you enjoyed yourselves and came home with some new information from the meeting.

I would like to thank the three ladies in the office for once again putting together another successful event. Also, a special thanks to all of our volunteers from registration to the Silent Auction. Finally, I would like to thank all the vendors and sponsors. Without your support, we would not be able to have such a great event.
