USDA Issues Recommended Decision on Proposed Amendments to All Federal Milk Orders
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Department of Agriculture today issued a recommended decision to adopt amendments to the producer-handler definition in all Federal milk marketing orders. This decision is based on testimony and evidence given at a public hearing held May 4-19 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The decision recommends that the producer-handler definitions of all Federal milk marketing orders be amended to limit exemption from pooling and pricing provisions of the orders to those producer-handlers with total route disposition of fluid milk products of 3 million pounds or less per month.
The public has 60 days to file comments. Send comments by using the Federal eRulemaking portal at http://www.regulations.gov.
The recommended decision will be published in the Oct. 21 Federal Register.
