Dairy Prices
 
 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?

Nixon Signs Dairy Revitalization Act
 
The Missouri Dairy Association (MDA) applauds Governor Jay Nixon for signing the Missouri Dairy Revitalization Act of 2015 into law.  

The Governor signed the Act at Edgewood Dairy, near Purdy, Missouri, owned by MDA member Charles and Melissa Fletcher, before a crowd of 200 dairy producers, local FFA students and industry representatives.

“We thank the Governor for recognizing the needs of maintaining a local milk supply for all Missouri consumers and our processing industry by helping Missouri’s dairy farmers with their risk management program,” says MDA President Lloyd Gunter, a dairy farmer from Conway, Missouri. “This represents an accumulation of work over the last eight years by MDA to educate our state’s elected  leaders and gain the support of many of Missouri’s mainstream agriculture organizations."
