An additional proposal, which seeks to establish cost-of-production surcharges that manufacturers could include in the selling price of their products but would not be included in the determination of NASS survey prices for cheese, butter, nonfat dry milk and dry whey, will be considered at the hearing.
The hearing will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Feb. 26, 2007, at the Holiday Inn Select Strongsville, 15471 Royalton Road, Strongsville, Ohio 44136.
