|With your support over the last two years, we have fought for California dairymen's right to vote to stop QIP. After much anticipation, you all will be able to exercise that right very soon!
Be on the lookout because ballots will be mailed out just yesterday! The voting period will end on June 1, 2021. Please be on the lookout for your ballot and VOTE EARLY.
To ensure your vote is counted, you MUST indicate your dairy's market milk production for January 2021. If you DO NOT have your dairy's market milk production for January 2021, please contact Steven Donaldson at (916) 900-5108 or email him at email@example.com. This information is mandatory to ensure your ballot is counted. The CDFA will not be monitoring, reporting or publishing the percentages of ballots received, which is why we are asking that you vote as soon as possible and that you provide the information being requested.
January milk volume will be on each ballot so producers will not need to include that information. (Read Q&A for more info)
We encourage you to support the 5 Year Sunset Plan because, in the long run, this plan will save our fellow dairymen from losing their farms, their livelihood and their legacies.
We are thrilled and eagerly look forward to finally leveling the playing field for ALL California dairies and putting a stop to QIP by voting YES in support of the Sunset Plan.
Check your mail and be sure to cast your vote early!
