FARM BUREAU URGES DAIRY PRODUCER ACTION

 FARM BUREAU URGES DIARY PRODUCER ACTION
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 20/ PRNewswire/ -- Ohio Farm Bureau Federation


Executive Vice President C. William Swank today urged dairymen in Ohio to contact their sate representatives this weekend in support of House Bill 616. The bill, which would set minimum prices paid to producers for milk, is expected to reach the House floor next week.
 In testimony earlier this week before the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, Swank stressed that the bill will not affect consumers and will avoid the downwardd price spikes that have plagued producers in the industry for years. He further noted the plan would improve free enterprise in the dairy industry by "doing what federal orders should have been doing during the past 10 years," to avoid these severe price fluctuations.
 Swank added, "We continuously hear about the importance of all general farm organizations working together. Well, here is a good example of that -- we are all together on this one."
