Task force to recommend help for NH dairy farmers to meet

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — A Dairy Producers Task Force to study and recommend a short-term plan for preserving New Hampshire's dairy industry is meeting to discuss aid in the midst of drought conditions and low milk prices for farmers.

The seven-member legislative task force was created after two meetings of the Milk Producers Emergency Relief Board. It's scheduled to meet Tuesday and has a reporting deadline of Nov. 4.

Officials have recommended that the Legislature approve up to $3.6 million in emergency aid for drought assistance and that lawmakers include $2 million in each year of the next biennium budget for the Milk Producers Emergency Relief Fund
