DFA has launched a massive PR campaign regarding the settlement with Dean Foods in the Northeast case.
According to the article and the court "DFA claims that such an arrangement would cause price erosion for dairy farmers."
Really,the arraignment DFA has had with Dean allows Dean to pay no premiums. You really can't go much lower than FMMO minimums. No wait, yes you can if you reblend dairy farmers milk checks as DFA has commonly done in Missouri, where they are headquartered.
