New Dairy bill
(click on images to enlarge)
Today a new bill was introduced in the House of Representatives HR 3935.
The bill creates a floor price under Class II and Class III farm milk price. The floor price for Class III is based on the average costs of production for the 23 lead dairy states. The Class II price is based on the recent relationship of Class II & III.
Class I was not used as to protect consumers. Class IV was used because of world trade issues.
The bill could use all the support which can be mustered.
