While PATS staff have always read and sought to respond to farmers’ written comments on surveys, we have never published any of them before. However, because of the large volume and the depth and conviction of the comments expressed in the 1997 survey, we felt it was time to make them available for other readers. In particular, we feel obligated to the farmer respondents. They have given freely of their time without compensation in order to make their views known to public policymakers and others whose decisions will affect the future of our dairy sector. Dairy farmer respondents also deserve to know what their counterparts across the state are saying.
