The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) is applauding the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for proposing an “Action Plan” for a national hearing based on NMPF’s proposal to modernize Federal Milk Marketing Orders (FMMO’s).

NMPF is looking forward to the next phase of creating a federal order system that better reflects today’s market conditions and dairy producer needs.

“We’re grateful USDA recognizes the comprehensive nature of our proposal and are looking forward to it being considered in full because the whole of our plan adds up to more than the sum of its parts,” says NMPF President and CEO Jim Mulhern. “We held more than 150 meetings and wide consultation across dairy producers and the entire industry in coming up with our plan.”

NMPF’s FMMO proposal offers comprehensive solutions that recognize the needs of today’s dynamic industry.
