Additionally, in an effort to support local dairy farmers the CCCD will discount all farm equipment rental fees by 50% for dairy farms during the 2021 growing season. The district’s board of supervisors voted to make the equipment available at half cost to dairy farmers because of the unprecedented economic challenges the industry faces during the COVID-19 pandemic.
