The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) released today the eight districts involved in the 2012 Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (WMMB) elections. DATCP, which oversees the nomination and election process, is inviting dairy producers who have an interest in serving the state's dairy industry and shaping its future to submit a nomination to represent their district. Nomination forms must be submitted by February 24.
Each year, Wisconsin dairy producers elect one-third of the WMMB 25-member board to three-year terms. Directors must be active dairy producers who sell milk into commercial channels and live in the district they represent.
