Election Predictions

At this point in time, one can safely bet, with the elections nearly over, we can go back to nothing happening in dairy policy. How many ways can "gridlock" be spelled.

Unfortunately,looking at today's CME, big trouble is on the way.

    Respectfully John, I think there is a very real possibility of passing dairy legislation in 2011. Rob Vandenheuvel wrote an insightful article in the Milk Producers Council Friday Report of October 29, 2010 outlining how this happens and why. It is worth a read. It can be found at:

  3. Geoffrey I read the article and while he does have some very good points the reality of the new goverment is that if it costs money or uopens us up to further expenditures down the road it ain;t going to happen. This new congress will not pass anyuthing outside of the farm bill and the farm bill isn't going through friendly hands. So you better cut the fat and that means give up on Washington as a price enhancer/stabilizer and hope it regulates well. That is our only hope. JR
