To all interested in participating in an organic dairy pool.
As many of you know; Organic Valley / CROPP Cooperative is seeking to
initiate an organic milk pool in Michigan.  Last March, Lowell
Rheinheimer Mideast Region Pool Coordinator for Organic Valley hosted a
meeting in Ravenna, Michigan for dairy farmers and others interested in
learning more about their milk marketing program.  The meeting was
attended by over 50 dairy farmers.

Lowell Rheinheimer is intending to spend the last week in June 2006 in

On June 28 Organic Valley will conduct a barn meeting on organic herd
health with veterinarian Dr. Paul Dettloff at the Jesse Meerman farm in
Coopersville, MI (see attached flyer.)  Lowell will then spend June 29
doing farm visits with interested dairy farmers along with national
dairy manager, Jim Wedeberg.  On June 30 and July 1, Lowell and Jim will
be hosting an Organic Valley exhibit at Horse Progress Days in Clare.
