Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service is proposing to reduce from two to one the number of importer members of the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board. This board oversees a program that seeks to maintain and expand domestic and foreign markets and uses for fluid milk and dairy products and is financed through assessments on imported dairy products and milk produced in the U.S. for commercial use.

The change in importer representation on the board is being proposed to accurately represent the volume of imported total milk solids compared to the volume of total solids represented by each of the 36 domestic producer members. Comments are due no later than May 2.
