PAY INCENTIVES ARE WRONG

Dairy farmer co-op management pay incentives are wrong.

Existing co-op management pay incentives are based on milk NOT members.

Existing co-op management are paid on ever increasing dairy sales and market share which requires ever increasing and cheaper milk, all at the expense of a profitable dairy farmer milk price.

NDPO encourages dairy farmer members to make an immediate change to pay incentives for THEIR co-op management.

Co-op management should NOT be paid based on milk volume but rather on whether the dairy farmer members receive a profitable milk price from the marketplace.

Co-op management pay should be based on the preservation of co-op dairy farmer membership receiving a profitable milk price NOT based on milk volume, dairy sales or market share.

Co-op management should profit ONLY when dairy farmer membership is maintained and dairy farmer members profit.
