USDA Amends Class I Price Formula

The USDA has announced a change to the pricing of skim milk in the Federal Milk Marketing Order.

USDA says the fluctuation in market prices used to determine the Class I price increases risk and uncertainty associated with hedging.  Congress in the 2018 Farm Bill addressed that fluctuation and the new formula will be used starting May 1st.

The Class I skim milk price will now be calculated with the average monthly Class III and Class IV advanced pricing factors plus $0.74 per hundredweight plus the applicable adjusted Class I differential.
