Van Hofwegen and his wife, Ingrid, milk 2,700 Holsteins in Stanfield, Ariz.
There is plenty going on in the area of dairy policy and politics. National Milk Producers Federation is introducing different production management programs for the farm bill. Foundation for the Future is being introduced. The idea of a production management program is not something that I am in favor of. I don’t believe the government is capable of regulation in our industry. It needs to be up to us as good businessmen to continue to look for better and more efficient ways to be successful.
