Dairy Co-Op To Impose Penalty On Farms That Make Too Much Milk

The region’s largest dairy cooperative will impose a new pricing system in January in an effort to curb excess milk production.

The Agri-Mark dairy co-op says that, starting in January, its 875 members will make less money if they produce too much milk. The Massachusetts-based Agri-Mark has about 170 farms in Vermont.

This new supply management system will establish a base production level for farmers calculated on their highest level of milk sold over the last three years.
