Dairy farmers ask Rivlin to champion their cause

The festive atmosphere at the President’s Residence on Wednesday belied the concerns of farmers living and working near the Gaza Strip.

A group of farmers and their children accompanied Michal Kraus, the executive director of the Israel Dairy Board, to a meeting with President Reuven Rivlin and his wife, Nechama, to present them with baskets of some of the numerous dairy products that are made from the milk and cream of Israel’s cows, goats and sheep.

The children all wore garlands of flowers in their hair. The men were in white shirts, the women in white blouses and the little girls in modest white dresses.
