By John Flowers

“You can’t do anything with any lot unless you have a working septic system,” he pointed out.

Posted on April 18, 2016 |
By By MICHELLE MONROE St. Albans Messenger



ST. ALBANS — Farmers may gain two advocates within Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) and Dairy Marketing Services (DMS) if the court approves a proposed settlement in the anti-trust case filed against the two dairy giants.

The two new positions — a farmer ombudsman and an advisory committee member — will give farmers more of a say in the operation of DFA and DMS.

“This gives the opportunity for the farmer’s voice to be heard and acted upon,” said Alice Allen, lead plaintiff in the anti-trust case filed in 2009.
