Processors Opposed to Senate Dairy Title

June 6, 2012

Jerry Slominski, senior vice president for legislative and economic affairs at the International Dairy Foods Association, issued the following statement on the Senate moving the Farm Bill to the floor for debate:
"IDFA remains opposed to the dairy title that is included in the Farm Bill as passed by the Senate Agriculture Committee. The new dairy supply management program in the bill will hurt exports, encourage imports, and limit job growth in the dairy processing industry.
"Consumers will pay more for dairy products; and nutrition programs, such as SNAP, will be forced to pay more for basic food items like milk. Instead of imposing even more regulations on dairy manufacturers, we urge the Senate to support a compromise plan that provides a safety net for dairy farmers without also having our government intervene in dairy markets by limiting milk supplies."
