What has MCFB done for you lately?

  • MCFB has continued to assist in the implementation of Water Demand Management Programs for compliance with the Russian River Frost Regulation.

MCFB has continued to participate in local meetings where the organization and formation of the Groundwater Sustainability Agency for the Ukiah Valley groundwater basin is being discussed.
  • MCFB continues to engage with UCCE and the Mendocino County RCD to look into the development of study methodology for different grazing management practices on the mitigation property of the Willits Bypass project.
  • As the County Board of Supervisors considers amending the county ordinance related to medical cannabis cultivation, MCFB has submitted a number of written and oral comments expressing concerns over land and resource uses as proposed in the draft documents.
  • MCFB attended a meeting at California Farm Bureau Federation to discuss grazing water quality with other ranchers throughout the state to be proactive in developing potential alternatives to GRAP.
  • MCFB members and staff took Assemblyman Jim Wood and Senator Mike McGuire on a tour to look at various water diversions from the Russian River to discuss SB 88 and the challenges related to the new reporting and measurement standards for water use.
  • MCFB organized a conference call with Senator Mike McGuire to discuss local impacts to the agriculture industries in Mendocino County related to changes to agricultural overtime law revisions.
