NODPA E-NEWSLETTER | May 2008

Welcome to NODPA's first
monthly email newsletter

We've decided to keep you better informed about the latest organic dairy news, trends and events by sending out a brief monthly email newsletter. We'll provide you with links to the latest articles and information on our web site--from events and classifieds to pay prices and grain prices. You'll also get regular updates from Washington, and hear about opportunities to have a voice in issues that affect your farm. Enjoy, and please ... let us know if you've run across any good stories about organic dairy farms, or have any news or anecdotes we can share with other members.

Ed Maltby, NODPA Executive Director
