New Pennsylvania Dairy Leadership Council to identify critical issues facing the dairy industry.
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett has named Rutter’s Dairy President, Todd Rutter, to the newly formed Pennsylvania Dairy Leadership Council.
Rutter is one of 25 council members representing each key segment within Pennsylvania’s dairy industry named to the Leadership Council, which will make recommendations to the governor on policies, procedures, regulations and legislation that may aid in the development of the dairy industry.
Chaired by Agriculture Secretary George Greig, the council will be responsible for identifying critical issues facing the dairy industry in areas such as dairy farm profitability, environmental compliance for dairy operations, dairy cattle welfare, family and next generation dairy producer opportunities, U.S. Farm Bill and federal dairy policy as well as Pennsylvania dairy policy and legislation.
The council was created by executive order to coordinate the development and expansion of the dairy industry in Pennsylvania.
Rutter’s Dairy is a third-generation dairy business serving Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey. Rutter’s Farm Stores debuted in 1967 as an additional outlet for Rutter’s Dairy products. Today, Rutter’s Farm Stores has more than 55 stores in Pennsylvania.
