Bill to help Missouri’s dairy industry heads to governor

Jefferson City, MO ( KTRS ) Legislation aimed at spurring growth in Missouri’s dairy industry is heading to the governor’s desk. The Senate voted 31-2 on Thursday to give the measure final approval.

It now needs support from Gov. Jay Nixon to become law. The measure would create a state subsidy to pay for 70 percent of farmers’ premium payments for federal dairy insurance.

Students studying agriculture who pledge to work in the dairy field could receive a $5,000 scholarship if lawmakers set aside money for that.

The bill also would require the University of Missouri to craft a plan each year detailing strategies to grow the dairy industry.

The bill is one of several proposed this year to help state farmers.
