USDA’s Ag Marketing Service-Dairy Programs has updated a working document with a series of frequently asked questions surrounding the potential creation of a Federal Milk Marketing Order (FMMO) in California, according to Rob Vandenheuvel, general manager of California's Milk Producers Council.

Moving California into the FMMO system, as well as reforming the state milk marketing order, are options under consideration by the state’s dairy farmers to address milk pricing and marketing issues.

The document, updated June 23, represents USDA Dairy Programs current thinking on certain topics, and is not intended to present binding USDA policy. As new details become available related to the proposed FMMO in California, answers may be modified.
