The changing Federal philosophy on pricing milk

AFPC Policy Issues Paper ( 96-2): 13 pp.

The changing Federal philosophy on pricing milk

The statutory objectives of US Federal dairy policy have not changed since the enactment of the Milk Price Support Program in 1949 and the enabling legislation for Federal Milk Marketing Orders in 1937 and, officially, price support objectives remain as specified in these documents. During the 1960s, dairy programme philosophy evolved into a uniform national policy on milk pricing.
