ABSTRACT

Dairy Policy Proposals in the 2012 Farm Bill [September 18, 2012]   [open pdf - 454KB]

From the Introduction: "This report describes proposed changes to existing dairy programs and the new margin-based support and stabilization programs. The report first briefly describes existing U.S. dairy programs. Then it focuses on the dairy programs proposed under both the Senate-passed and House Agriculture Committee-reported farm bills. In addition to describing the major features of the proposed new programs, this report also covers differences between the two bills, as well as cost estimates of historical program outlays compared with recent Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projections of the proposed new dairy programs. In addition, several examples of how these proposed dairy programs might operate for an individual dairy operation are provided in the text."
