Dairy group asks Vilsack to define “consensus”

A dairy group is asking Ag Secretary Vilsack to clarify what he needs to move ahead with Federal Milk Marketing Order hearings.

Laurie Fischer with the American Dairy Coalition says the ADC Board of Directors sent a letter to Vilsack asking him to give specific requirements since the board is not sure if the Secretary wants a consensus of stakeholders agreeing to a hearing vetting potential milk pricing proposals or if he wants a consensus of stakeholders agreeing on the same proposal before bringing that to a hearing.
