Innovation Center launches new tools for dairy producers

International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) announced its support for the Dairy Freedom Act introduced in the House of Representatives this week by Representatives Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and David Scott (D-GA). The act would establish a Dairy Producer Margin Insurance program and would repeal the Dairy Product Price Support Program, the Milk Income Loss Contract Program and the Dairy Export Incentive Program.

“This is a true middle-ground approach as no one gets everything they want, and Congress should use it as a way to move the Farm Bill forward,” said Jerry Slominski, IDFA senior vice president of legislative affairs and economic policy.
