FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative > FarmFirst Exclusive Federal Order Webinar

Highlights from FarmFirst's Exclusive Federal Order Webinar

FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative provided its members a virtual presentation by the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) on Thursday, August 11 regarding the latest developments on Federal Milk Marketing Order modernization.

In early 2022, NMPF created a Federal Order Task Force, which FarmFirst General Manager Jeff Lyon serves on, to evaluate and study several federal order issues. During the one-hour zoom presentation, Peter Vitaliano, NMPF Vice President of Economic Policy and Market Research, provided insight on the latest taskforce discussions, which included make allowances, the Class I mover, milk composition, and dairy products/product specifications (price discovery, block/barrel spread) among other considerations.

You can watch the full webinar at the link below. FarmFirst would like to thank NMPF for their time in hosting the webinar for cooperative members, and encourages anyone with questions on the Federal Order issues being discussed to contact FarmFirst.
