GREEN BAY, Wis. — The newest episode of the Dairy Stream podcast focuses on the proposed Farm Workforce Modernization Act, which would provide a year-round option to include employees in livestock agriculture. The bill was approved by the House of Representatives but has not moved in the Senate.
Dairy Stream host Mike Austin talked with Brandon Davis, an agricultural labor attorney and partner at Phelps Dunbar in New Orleans, about the requirements of H-2A, the impact it has on the agricultural community and future possibilities.
“I think what we should expect with the Farm Workforce Modernization Act of 2021 is a good program will become even better and will reach a broader audience like dairy,” Davis said.
