WUD Member Hosts Attorney General Rob Bonta & Assemblymember Dr. Joaquin Arambula
The Western United Dairies Government Affairs team continues to work with California Cattleman’s Association and the California Cattle Council to engage producers and legislators in the Policymaker–Producer Engagement Program. The program focuses on engaging key legislators and connecting them with producers in their representative districts on member dairy and beef operations. October 27thWUD member John Verwey hosted Attorney General Rob Bonta & Assemblymember Dr. Dr. Joaquin Arambula at his dairy operation in Fresno. Verwey shared the ins and outs of his operation along with what sustainability for California dairies looks like with a focus on GHG’s, animal health and wellness, and current production practices. The willingness of members to host the program at their operation has been vital to program success.
