Happy Independence Day to you and your family! I hope you have a fun and safe holiday and are able to enjoy quality time with family, great food and fireworks! Additionally, if you’re traveling over the holiday, please be sure to drive safely.
We’re so incredibly lucky to live in a free country and enjoy our countless freedoms and liberties. Independence Day is a time to reflect on the great men and women who helped lead our country toward independence.

Dairy Assistance Program
Recently, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture announced the rollout of the new Dairy Assistance, Investment, and Relief Initiative (DAIRI) program, which provides financial assistance for small- to medium-sized dairy producers who meet certain qualifications. This program was funded through the Agriculture and the Jobs omnibus bills this session to ensure that our dairy farmers can continue the work that is so important to our state.
To apply, or for information on how to qualify, please visit www.mda.state.mn.us/dairi.
