CEO of American Dairy Association North East Rick Naczi explained, “Our dairy farmers are actually going through a pretty difficult time themselves, but they’re very community-oriented, very family-oriented, and they want to do something to help the community.” Bordeau expressed he’s happy to help both his families and the dairy farmers. Bordeau hopes to repeat this process in two weeks. “Oh I know the families will be thrilled, anytime we have something extra for them they’re always so very appreciative of what we can do for them,” said Bordeau. However, some dairy farmers are choosing to turn the tables on their circumstances. “Farmers are struggling right now, dairy farmers especially, to be able to help them out, and help our families out, you see unemployment is so high right now, families are struggling, so just a gallon of milk alone just is tremendous savings for them, so anything we can do to help our community, we want to do it,” he explained.center_img BOCES Senior Food Services Director Mark Bordeau told 12 News 3,900 gallons of milk were donated and will be distributed through the BOCES meal program, helping to feed children in Broome and Tioga County while out of school. Dairy Farmers of America and American Dairy Association North East joined forces Wednesday to donate thousands of gallons of milk to the Southern Tier. “Right now in the dairy industry we’ve had a drop-off of sales because of that fact that people can’t go out to restaurants anymore, because of that we’ve had a surplus of milk and our farmers are trying to make sure they take advantage of helping the people who need milk now by using that milk appropriately where they can,” Naczi explained. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — As 12 News continues to follow the struggles of dairy farmers amid the coronavirus crisis, Wednesday, two major dairy organizations donated thousands of gallons of extra milk to the Southern Tier. And if it weren’t for projects like this one, Naczi said, “Some of this project would be disposed of, which really is tough on the farmers, they’re trying to feed people, they’re trying to make the product and having to have it run into the field somewhere is very difficult.”last_img read more


first_imgLondon: Lancashire and the clubs three overseas players — BJ Watling, Glenn Maxwell and James Faulkner — have mutually terminated contracts for the 2020 campaign.New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman Watling was signed for the opening nine County Championship games while the Australian duo of Maxwell and Faulkner were signed up for the T20 Blast competition.However, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and given the cancellation of all fixtures until May 28 — and the current uncertainty surrounding the season beyond that date — Lancashire’s Director of Cricket Paul Allott contacted all three players and representatives over the last two weeks and having explained the situation, it was mutually agreed that all three contracts for the 2020 season would be cancelled.Allott said: “These are clearly very uncertain and challenging times for all counties both financially and operationally and it’s clear the issues we face at the moment will have an impact on the way we prepare for the domestic season.”“The overseas player situation is a policy that has been discussed nationwide and we think it’s prudent to mutually come to an agreement with the players we had originally signed.“We will keep in touch with the players and their representatives, and as part of the agreement we’ve come to, we do have an option to sign them for the 2021 campaign.“Clearly, we are looking at a condensed and truncated season, and whilst it is of course disappointing not to have any overseas players at our disposal, it does mean that we will be able to give our young, and homegrown players increased opportunities,” he added.In addition, the club has also agreed with all staff a 20 per cent salary reduction in May. This has also been unanimously agreed to by the Lancashire players.“I would also like to thank the current Lancashire squad for agreeing to a 20 per cent salary reduction for the month of May,” Allott said.“The players were very keen that any salary reductions for them should be in line with the rest of the club’s staff. It has truly been a unified approach to what is a very difficult situation we currently find ourselves in,” he added.
