On this week’s Ag Report on Greening of the Great Lakes, Ken Nobis, president of the Michigan Milk Producers Association, discusses Michigan Milk’s partnership with Michigan State University Extension, and its recognition this fall as an Extension Key Partner.
“As the Michigan Milk Producers Association closes out our 100-year anniversary celebration, we were honored to be recognized with the Key Partner Award at MSU Extension’s annual conference, a nod to dairy farmers’ longtime support of our state’s land grant university,” says Nobis.
In bestowing the award, Michigan State noted that partnerships with MMPA have educated dairy farmers about the latest technology in the industry, helped farm families achieve success, and expanded 4-H programs statewide.
Michigan’s dairy farmers also worked closely this year with MSU Extension to provide healthy food to families that were affected by the Flint water crisis. This included several milk donations to Flint families earlier in 2016.
“We’re proud of our work together and we are honored to be named a Key Partner by MSU Extension for 2016,” Nobis says.
