Tague Overjoyed At Dairy Grant

A statement by Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C,I,Ref-Schoharie) on the governor’s $30 million grant to dairy farms.

“I am ecstatic about the Governor’s attention to our dairy farms. Dairy has been a staple of our economy since the Revolutionary War and due to red-tape and export decisions, our farmers are currently suffering great burdens.”

“Being a former dairy farmer myself, I know just how difficult and how rewarding this life can be. That is why I applaud the governor’s focus on this important issue. We all rely on farmers to keep food on our tables, and if we don’t help them who knows what will happen. This grant will help keep dairy farms open and operating while encouraging modernization and efficient business practices. It is a monumental step toward helping our farmers be able to compete nationally and globally.”
