Milk Marketing Orders

Federal milk marketing orders are administered by the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) of the Department of Agriculture. Milk marketing orders promote orderly marketing conditions by applying a uniform system of classified pricing throughout the farm milk market. Federal milk marketing orders regulate handlers that sell milk or milk products within an order region by requiring them to pay at least the established minimum price for Grade A milk they purchase from dairy producers. As of 2000, there are 11 milk marketing orders, down from 31 when the law was enacted in the 1930s. Federal milk marketing orders are established and amended through the formal hearing process. Federal milk marketing order hearings allow interested parties to present evidence in support of, or in opposition to establishing or amending an order.
