To the Editor:
New York Farm Bureau is supportive of Sen. Darrel Aubertine and his efforts to help farm families through the worst milk pricing downturn in decades (Ã¢â‚¬Å“County farmers’ concerns mount over the dairy crisisÃ¢â‚¬Â 10/14/09).
And itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not just dairy that is struggling. Other commodities are suffering too from the effects of the global fiscal crisis.
The SenatorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s leadership on the issue in Albany, guided by input from the series of roundtable discussions he is hosting around the state this fall, will be a critical component to the solution to this crisis.
We look forward to the SenatorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s continued efforts, as we all work together to help ensure that New YorkÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s dairy farm families thrive once again.
Dean Norton, President
New York Farm Bureau
