Adams outlines opportunities to Pa. Dairymen’s Association
CAMP HILL John Adams,
National Milk Producers
Federation, Tuesday evening
outlined opportunities to remedy
the ailing dairy industry.
Adams, who is director ot
NMPF’s Environmental and Food
Regulatory Affairs, offered his
suggestions in a speech before the
113th meeting of the Pennsylvania
Dairymen’s Association, held in
the ballroom of the Penn Harris
Award for his many contributions to promoting the dairy
industry and his involvement with advertising dairy products.

Convention Centor
“Opportunity number one,” said
Adams, “is to make the new
federal dairy program work by
decreasing milk production by 10
Adams called the program, “
an equitable solution Dairymen
have the responsiblity to make the
program work If the program is
unsuccessful by March ‘B5
dairymen will have to face the
political consequences Price
supports could fall beyond what we
expected, as much as by $2-$3-$4
per hundredweight. Many
dairymen would be forced out of
business, especially young
dairymen, our future leaders ”
Opportunity number two, said
Adams, is the dairy promotion
program soon to be implemented
The promotion deductions will
generate over $lOO million for hard
nosed advertising.
Part of this money should be
usea to dispeu ounie ol the myins
plaguing the dairy industry,
suggested Adams, referring to
false beliefs about cholestrol and
fat. New dietary requirements that
recommend eating less red meat,
milk and eggs should also be
targeted, said Adams.
Opportunity number three is to
develop uniform standards in the
United States for sohds-not-fat in
whole milk, non-fat milk and skim
milk, according to Adams
Opportunity number four is to
work at the state level to define
what an imitation dairy product is
Adams called imitation dairy
products the greatest challenge in
the future of the industry
Opportunity number five, "let’s
quit fighting among ourselves,”
Adams said. The dairy industry
has lost a lot of respect because of
disagreements between its many
“We cannot afford to be divided
and conquered,” Adams said
“Today there are many forces in
our society working against
animal agriculture ”
In closing, Adams remarked.
“We in the dairy industry must
become more consumer market
oriented and less big brother
dependent ”
Secretary of Agriculture
Penrose Hallowell said sentiments
“Twist-Lock” cups: newest
innovation from the new leader
...another reason SWISH saves you more labor,
more birds, and more money
The newest twist in cage watering makes cup cleaning
and maintenance a real snap its SWISH s Twist Lock
cups for cage layers and brood grow watering systems
Saves labor. No more contortions
with hand tools inside a cage-one
simple twist of the wrist unlocks and
removes the unitized cup and valve it s
that easy to maintain when necessary
But with SWISH it s hardly ever
necessary That s because our cup is
self cleaning Our patented valve keeps
the cup clean by flushing any feed
particles out so birds can consume them
with the water
Installation is a snap too with SWISH s
new cups they simply snap into the
desired location and the hose attaches
to the water line outlet These are some
in Pennsylvania indicate the
state’s dairy industry is moving
toward that consumer market
orientation Adams spoke about.
"We are dedicated to selling
more milk,” Hallowed said “We
have suggested to the USDA that
mat t'ennsylvania have its own
promotion program and have
requested that Pennsylvania have
a representative on the 36 member
promotion committee directing the
use of promotion funds.”
Hallowed was presented a
certificate declaring Pennsylvania
Brucellosis free by John Atwell, a
deputy administrator of the USDA
Pennsylvanis has had no outbreaks
of the disease since Jan ‘B2
However, he stressed the need to
keep a constant surveillence of

couraged anyone interested in
promoting the dairy industry and
advertising milk to become a
member of the association.
Roth recognized Don Ace for his
help and support as an advisor for
the association for many years

said Roth.
E. Wayne Beshore of New
Cumberland was presented the
1983 Charles E. Cowan Memorial
