Premiums and hauling costs? Take this survey

Published on 15 January 2020

Calling all U.S. dairy farmers!

Interested in how milk handlers pay you for quality and volume? Have a point of view on equitable hauling cost structure? Have preferences for selling to a farmer-owned cooperative or independent handler?



If you answered yes to any of these questions, we want to hear from you! Take the Cornell Dairy Pricing Survey today.

Your input will importantly inform how milk handlers consider these issues in alignment with dairy farmer preferences. The survey is not specific to any particular federal or state milk marketing order. The focus is on price adjustments made by the handler after the required minimum price is determined by the relevant milk marketing order.

It will take less than 15 minutes to complete. The deadline is Feb. 15.

Want to read about the results? Just include your email in the survey. Plus you have a chance to win one of five $100 Visa gift cards.

For more information, contact Todd M. Schmit or Roberta M. Severson, Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, Cornell University.


Please forward the survey to other dairy farmers in your network!  end mark
