N.H. Dairy producers Legislative Task Force to Meet Tuesday

A group of lawmakers named to a Dairy Producers Task Force to study and recommend a short-term plan for preserving New Hampshire's dairy industry, which is struggling with drought conditions and low milk prices.

The seven-member task force was created two meetings of the Milk Producers Emergency Relief Board to discuss the issues surrounding drought and milk production. It's scheduled to meet Tuesday and has a reporting deadline of Nov. 4.

Officials have recommended that the Legislature approve up to $3.6 million in emergency aid for drought assistance and that lawmakers include $2 million in each year of the next biennium budget for the Milk Producers Emergency Relief Fund.
