The creation of a new long term farm bill is facing yet another hurdle. This time the disagreement is over dairy policy and the two combatants are House Speaker John Boehner and
Ranking House Ag Committee Member Colin Peterson. Peterson is pushing for the farm bill conferees to support the Dairy Security Act which does contain a supply management
provision...While House Speaker John Boehner made it clear he will not bring any bill to the floor that contains supply management. So what are the options? One may be to retain
the milk income loss contract program.
