WASHINGTON, July 22, 2011 The U.S. Department of Agriculture today announced that proceedings on proposed amendments to the Class I price surface of the Mideast milk marketing order have been terminated.


USDA issued a recommended decision on Jan. 8, 2009, to adopt amendments to the Class I price surface of the Mideast marketing order. Nearly all of the exceptions to the recommended decision noted that marketing conditions have changed substantially since the close of the hearing, making changes to the Class I price surface of the Mideast marketing area unwarranted.


USDA has determined that significant changes in the marketing conditions of the Mideast marketing area make any increase in the Class I prices unjustified and is terminating this rulemaking proceeding.


This notice was published in the July 22, 2011 Federal Register. For additional information on the termination notice contact: Paul A. Huber, USDA/AMS/Dairy Programs, P.O. Box 5102, Brunswick, OH 44212; Tel. (330) 225-4758; email: phuber@fmmaclev.com.
