“Congress needs to implement the Dairy Security Act as part of the Farm Bill this year that contains a margin insurance program for farmers and a mechanism to help balance the U.S. milk supply with demand.

“We need to be able to cover our milk production costs and receive a fair profit for our work with the money we receive in our milk check.
“That’s our ultimate goal.”
