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 Michigan.
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.
If you are interested or know of a dairy farmer interested please contact Lowell to find out more information about the Organic Valley marketing opportunity.
