Sept 7, 2022

September opens a busy fall schedule! 

The month opened with yesterday's public announcement that Jason Nierman is the new Market Administrator for the Appalachian (FMMO 5), Southeast (FMMO 7), and Florida (FMMO 6)  Milk Marketing Orders.  Jason is a familiar face and voice to many of us. He has most recently served as an Assistant Market Administrator, as well as held other positions in the FMMO office in prior years.

We say a big 'Thank You' to Harold Friedly for his many years of dedicated service to the Federal Order System and dairy folks around the southeast.   We wish him well as he begins a 'career change' to retirement.


  • News Release: Jason Nierman Named Market Administrator for FMMOs 5, 6, 7
  • Reminder: Georgia District  Meetings begin next week; please RSVP, attend
  • Dairyland Classic slated for Sept. 28 - Oct. 1

As always, many thanks to each of you for producing MILK, for buying MILK, for drinking MILK, and for promoting the consumption of MILK!  It is the economic lifeblood and a nutritional anchor of many of our local communities.   

It's our industry, and our collective responsibility to do all we can to promote it in order to preserve it. Because if we don't, who will?

Julie Walker,
