By donating to Oregon Dairy PAC, you are supporting legislative measures and candidates at the state and federal level who understand and value Oregon’s agriculture, natural resources, and business communities. The Oregon Dairy Farmers Association has been engaged with issues at both the state and federal level:  
State Level
  • Ag OT – although the bill passed during the 2021 Short Session, we have not given up. We will continue to educate elected officials of the financial impact it will have on your business and your employees.    
  • ODFA has organized and participated in several farm tours over the last two years. We have prioritized more tours, with smaller groups of elected officials and agency leadership, going forward. Decision makers need to see firsthand the high standards of care for our dairy cows, our employees, and the environment.
  • Defeated the phase out of petroleum diesel through the efforts of a broad coalition.  
  • Support of OSU Statewides and Extension.  
  • Regulatory Oversight – ODA’s CAFO and Food Safety Program, the Water Resources Department, DEQ and EQC.    
  • Initiative Petition 3 - Animal rights activists filed an Initiative Petition (IP) aimed at the 2024 ballot.

Proponents are gathering signatures to try and quality for the November 2024 ballot.
