NMPF’s Galen Discusses Federal Order Hearing, WOTUS Updates
September 5, 2023
Chris Galen, NMPF’s senior vice president of membership services and strategic initiatives, discusses the second week of USDA’s national hearing on Federal Order modernization, which focused on updating the milk composition formula. NMPF witnesses this week included member cooperative staff experts and dairy farmers, who effectively discussed the need to have the FMMO pricing formula reflect the rise in milkfat and solids over the past two decades. Galen also discussed EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers’ revised definition of the “waters of the U.S.”, which conforms to a recent Supreme Court ruling.
