Michigan farmers have voted to continue the state’s dairy checkoff.
The Michigan Dairy Market Program for Grade “A” Milk was established in 1983 to promote the sale of milk and milk products as well as consumer education within the state. Farmers are assessed 10 cents per hundredweight to support its work.
More than 90 percent of producers representing more than 90 percent of milk production from ballots voted yes. Referendums are held every five years.
