The full House Committee on Agriculture will hold a public hearing to review dairy policy April 20, 2010, in Harrisburg, Pa.
The hearing takes place the day before the House ag committee meets in Washington, D.C., to discuss farm policy in advance of the 2012 farm bill, says Roger Bernard, Farm Journal Policy and Washington editor.
"The April 20 hearing will look at current dairy policy, dairy's economic conditions, the steps that have been taken so far, and whether the industry is headed toward more problems,” says Bernard.
"It will be interesting to see who will testify,” he added.
The witness list of those who will testify is generally released a couple of days before the hearing.
The hearing begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Farm Show Complex and Expo Center at 2300 North Cameron Street in Harrisburg.
