ADC Applauds Rep Sean Duffy for Ensuring
A Workforce for Dairy Farmers
The dairy farmers represented by the American Dairy Coalition (ADC) are elated with U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI)c, co-chair of the Congressional Dairy Farm Caucus, for his leadership in introducing a new immigration reform policy for dairy operations.
The new legislation — known as the DAIRY Act — will help to provide a reliable labor force, ensuring dairy producers have the workers necessary to care for their animals as well as provide healthy and affordable dairy products to our nation and across the globe.ADC highly supports the efforts of Rep. Duffy in his work to allow the dairy industry to utilize the H2-A visa program. Previously, the dairy industry was excluded due to its 365-day-a-year need for labor. Dairy farmers have been waiting for a provision to utilize the H2-A visa category to legally employ immigrant workers to fill important roles thatdomestic workers continually pass up. The H2-A visa is a vital tool to provide year-round labor for dairy operations.
The American Dairy Coalition has worked diligently on several immigration reform bills, which each representing various tools dairy farmers can utilize to access the labor so desperately needed to ensure they can successfully maintain their businesses. ADC will work hard with Rep Duffy to move this bill over the finish line.
