The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) announced that 13 nominees are certified eligible for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (WMMB) 2013 Board of Directors election.
DATCP confirmed that each candidate is an active dairy producer who sells milk into commercial channels and lives in the district up for election.
In addition, DATCP certified each candidate's nomination form, which included five signatures from active dairy producers within the district and a notarized "Affidavit of Eligibility" requirement.
To vote, DATCP will distribute mail-in ballots in early April to dairy producers who live within the eight affected districts. Producers who do not receive a ballot by April 17 should call Noel Favia at 608-224-5140.
Elections will be held through April 27, with results announced later in May.
