Tipton Touts Simple Approach for Dairy Reform in New Video

Aug 10, 2011

Growing global demand and the business it's bringing to the United States "is a total success story for the U.S. dairy industry," says Connie Tipton, IDFA president and CEO, in the latest "Coffee with IDFA" video. Tipton emphasizes the importance of getting the right policies in place "so we can take full advantage and be a consistent exporter in these markets."

She calls for keeping policies simple, getting rid of the Dairy Product Price Support Program, providing adequate funding for the Livestock Gross Margin for Dairy program, setting up tax-deferred savings accounts for producers and simplifying the milk pricing system.
