On Tuesday, Rep. Brandon Vick received the endorsement from The Washington State Dairy Federation who represents Washington’s 416 dairy farmers and has been the voice of dairy families since 1892.
In a letter, Dan Wood, Executive Director shared: “Dairy foods constitute the 2nd largest agricultural commodity produced in Washington, with a direct economic impact valued at $1.3 billion. Additional, indirect economic effects boost the total value of dairy farming to Washington’s economy to an estimated $5.2 billion.
Dairy farmers are proactive in working with state and federal agencies to better our practices to protect the quality of our milk and Washington’s natural resources.
This endorsement reflects our members’ trust in you to serve and lead our state, our communities, our rural farm families, and, in particular, our dairy industry.”
The WSDF develops and promote initiatives directed toward the financial strength, political support, and public awareness of our industry to achieve a successful business climate for dairy farmers in Washington State. For more information visit: www.wastatedairy.com
