Holstein Association USA press release

Holstein Association USA (HA) has produced a video to help dairy producers across the country gain a better understanding of the Dairy Price Stabilization Program (DPSP). The video is available to view or download on the Holstein Association USA Web site at .

"Interest in the Dairy Price Stabilization Program continues to mount.  As a result, we are receiving initiations to speak on the topic from coast to coast, and unfortunately are unable to appear at all of the meetings,” says HA Chief Executive Officer John Meyer.  For those meetings that an official Holstein Association USA representative cannot attend personally, the nine-minute video serves as a good option to hear about the Holstein Association's innovative program to stabilize milk prices.”

Featuring commentary by Meyer and Gordie Cook, member of the Holstein Association USA board of directors and chair of the Legislative Affairs committee, the video answers commonly asked questions about the DPSP. The video may be viewed online by interested individuals or downloaded to be shown to groups at producer meetings.

The DPSP's primary objective is to prevent severely depressed producer milk prices and reduce the price volatility that has plagued the dairy industry. Holstein Association USA's plan has been gaining momentum and is receiving the endorsement of producer organizations and milk cooperatives across the country. Through the Association's Web site, producers around the country are also showing support and providing their endorsement.
