Local meeting

We had our milk co-op local meeting today.  It was definitely the most exciting meeting I've been to in the three years since I moved here!

- There was a lot of discussion about voting, delegate numbers, and board decisions.  At the very basic level, people just want to make sure that their voices are being heard. 

- The president, Ken Nobis, was talking about some new programs.  One of the things he said was, "We have to do what the consumer wants."  It's true.  A farm is a business, and you need customers who want what you're peddling.

- Kris and I are applying to be part of the Outstanding Young Dairy Cooperative conference.  It's been held annually for the past 61 years. 

- According to MMPA, Kris and I are considered 'young' for EIGHT more years.  That was even more exciting than the meeting.

The points here are really good. One does indeed need to know about what the customer wants if he want his or her business to excel!
