NFFC has called for emergency direct payments scaled to to dairy farm size and supply management to prevent farmers from depending on export markets.

The National Family Farm Coalition announces the launch of its “Fair Farm Prices Now!” campaign at Farm Aid 2019 on September 21 at the Alpine Valley Music Theater in East Troy, Wisconsin. The first demand of the campaign is emergency economic relief for dairy farmers to compensate for the unjustifiably low prices they have been paid for their milk for years. Core to NFFC’s mission is ensuring vibrant rural economies through fair prices and living wages for all in the food system.
