Dairy Facts 2016 Offers Quick Facts on Supply Control

Feb 23, 2011

The new IDFA website,, has posted a list of frequently asked questions about milk supply-control programs and how they would affect price volatility and existing dairy support programs. The site also features several fact sheets that IDFA members can download and share with dairy farmers, legislators and others following the current industry discussion regarding supply control.

IDFA supports policies, such as revenue insurance, that will help dairy farmers manage price volatility, but opposes supply-control programs, which have been shown to reduce jobs, investment and innovation in the dairy sector.

Members with questions may contact Jerry Slominski, IDFA senior vice president of economic policy and legislative affairs, at
