Milk Marketing Board Elections
Dairy farmers in nine Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board districts are reminded they have until May 25th to mail in their director election ballots. For the 2017 election, seven districts have candidates running unopposed, while two districts have run-off elections. One of the contested districts is for District 16, which represents Fond du Lac, Green Lake and Marquette counties. Candidates for that district are David Schmitz of Fond du Lac and Janet Clark of Rosendale. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection mailed ballots to eligible dairy producers in the affected districts during the first week of May.
