ADC favors higher-of pricing model

The American Dairy Coalition is advocating to temporarily return to the Class I milk pricing formula used before the 2018 Farm Bill.

Laurie Fischer tells Brownfield no fix can be done overnight but using higher-of pricing worked for more than 20 years and gives farmers certainty as additional solutions are explored.

“We’re not right now saying that other options are not going to be viable long-term, but since those haven’t been vetted, we want to go back to something that has been,” she says.

She says the industry needs to go through the hearing process to better understand the impacts of any potential changes and return to a pricing system that’s worked.

Brownfield’s Larry Lee interviewed Fischer during the recent World Dairy Expo.
