Over the years some confusion surrounding the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Dairy Products Prices (DPP) program and the use of these data in the class price formulas. Why are NASS’s DPP reports used in the Agricultural Marketing Service’s (AMS) class price formulas? How are the NASS reports compiled? Is there a magic formula used to generate the NASS DPP reports? What prevents manufacturing plants from misreporting or manipulating the prices?

OMAHA (DTN) -- It's been one month since the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) tentatively agreed on a new five-year contract, covering workers at all 29 West Coast ports. The next step will be taken sometime during the week of March 30 when a caucus of 90 union delegates will decide to recommend it for consideration by the full membership. Then, every union member will receive a copy of the tentative agreement for discussion at their local union meeting. After that, a vote to ratify (or not) is then taken by secret ballot sometime during April.
