Tipton Cites IDFA Goal of 'Getting Along, but Getting It Right'

Nov 12, 2010

While working together as an industry remains critical to moving forward on dairy policy reform, IDFA must remain steadfast to its principles, explained Connie Tipton, IDFA president and CEO, in her latest Cheese Market News column. "As we begin to make the case for and against policy proposals being debated as part of the next farm bill, IDFA and its members will continue to push for changes that are based squarely on our principles," she said.

Four Guiding Principles

IDFA believes that dairy policies and programs should:

  • provide an effective dairy farm safety net based on farm income or milk margin;
  • have a competitive orientation focused on fostering innovation and growth;
  • enhance demand rather than control prices and supply; and
  • support trade expansion.
