Van Orden proposes Dairy Business Innovation Act.

Proposed Legislation Aims to Support Dairy Industry

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – U.S. Representative Derrick Van Orden is advocating for additional support to be given to the dairy industry through new proposed legislation.

The Dairy Business Innovation Act of 2023

Van Orden recently introduced the Dairy Business Innovation Act of 2023 in the House of Representatives, aiming to bolster the assistance offered to regional dairy research. This bill seeks to raise the program’s annual authorization from $20 million to $36 million.

Supporting Dairy Producers Across the United States

The program in question was established by the 2018 Farm Bill, creating numerous dairy business and innovation centers to cater to producers all over the country.

Program Benefits Over the Years

Van Orden highlights the program’s positive impact on dairy farmers in recent years.

“It allows our small and medium-sized dairies to have more capital so they can invest in areas such as marketing, developing stronger business plans, and diversifying the use of dairy itself. By expanding the range of products obtained from our milk, we can broaden the market,” Van Orden explains.

Similar Legislation Introduced in the Senate

U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin presented comparable legislation in the Senate earlier this month, demonstrating bipartisan recognition of the importance of supporting the dairy industry.
