The May 1 deadline for growers to return Farm Evaluation Surveys is less than 30 days away. The East San Joaquin Water Quality Coalition (ESJWQC) is encouraging members to complete the four-page survey, an important information gathering requirement of the new Waste Discharge Requirements (WDR) adopted by the Regional Water Board on December 12, 2012.
This year, MCFB hosted the 97th Annual Meeting at the Merced Fairgrounds on March 6, 2014. To our delight, the event was a huge success for the organization and attendees! The evening’s Major Sponsors included: American AgCredit, Live Oak Farms, MID Foundation, Merced-Mariposa Cattlemen’s Association, PG&E, Rabobank, and Yosemite Farm Credit.
