Producers in Key Dairy States Oppose Draft Policy Bill

Aug 03, 2011

UPDATED: August 29, 2011

Dairy producers in Wisconsin and Minnesota have teamed up to oppose elements of the draft legislation introduced for discussion by Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN). The groups take particular exception to the supply control element of the proposal.

According to a joint press release issued by the Wisconsin Dairy Business Association and the Minnesota Milk Producers Association, the Dairy Market Stabilization Program will "remove the U.S. dairy industry as a consistent supplier to the world market by potentially pricing our commodities out of the global marketplace at times, causing a decrease in demand for U.S. dairy exports and more milk price volatility."
