Letter from Leadership - November 2018

Posted by: Tim Trotter, executive director
This has been an action-packed season. While you’ve been busy in the fields finishing up harvest, the political scene has been busy as well, especially with the recent elections.
To say that things will continue to be interesting and different is an understatement. Our Edge team has been considering policy scenarios as the election approached, with the expectation that change would occur. And it has.
As with any change, now, more than ever before we need to continue to focus on building trust within the new congressional offices and leadership. This is an opportunity for us to provide input to see positive outcomes on immigration, trade and farm policy.
I would encourage your participation at our upcoming annual meeting where we will highlight our federal policy agenda and you’ll have the opportunity to provide your input to our team. The meeting will be held from 1:30-3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at the Monona Terrace in Madison, Wis., in conjunction with the Dairy Strong conference. More details will follow in upcoming newsletters and on our website.
As we prepare our minds and hearts for Thanksgiving, let's reflect on all of our blessings that are part of our wonderful way of life. Your hard work is evident across the world. From all of us at Edge, please have a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels wherever your holiday journey takes you. We are thankful for the opportunity to work for you and our dairy community.
