Saputo, Australia’s largest dairy producer, says “We don’t give our product away … the days of cheap milk are over.”
So also should DFA, U.S.’s largest dairy farmer member owned dairy producer, say “We don’t give our product away.”
Instead of paying industry-leading lowest prices for milk, DFA should follow Saputo in guaranteeing it will pay industry-leading highest prices for milk.
Let’s work together to balance the milk supply with profitable demand by implementing the policies of NDPO which will prevent a damaging surplus of milk production which depresses milk prices and causes financial loss and reduction in the number of U.S. dairy farmers and will send the correct milk supply to the market and will provide a profitable milk price for most existing U.S. dairy farmers and preserve as many U.S. dairy farmers as possible regardless of size and location.
It is a dairy farmer choice to properly manage the milk supply he makes and his co-ops, or not.
The family dairy farmer members of NDPO urge you to join and implement the policies of NDPO and to not only survive but prosper.
