DBMMC Board of Directors Policy Statement On Supply Control
The Dairy Business Milk Marketing Cooperative (DBMMC) opposes all forms of government milk supply control and changes to the government’s current milk pricing system which make the existing Federal Order system even more disruptive to dairy markets. Instead; DBMMC encourages strong risk management tools which will protect dairy producers during catastrophic times; but also provides fiscal responsibility.

The Dairy Business Milk Marketing Cooperative is Here To Serve You!
It is time we farmers get more involved to make changes on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC that will improve our bottom line. We have worked our entire lives to build equity, but wasteful spending and more unfounded costly regulations are tearing away our profits.
The Dairy Business Milk Marketing Cooperative (DBMMC) was formed to help you improve your bottom line. When DBMMC began we reduced the charge for testing services; shortly after that all testing cooperatives reduced their charge; saving millions of dollars for farmers. This is just the beginning of what DBMMC will do for you!
"DBMMC will be your watchdog to make sure good policy is passed that will help you. We have great relationships with members in Congress and their staffs to remove bad policy, unnecessary regulations, and bring back common sense."
-Laurie Fischer, Executive Director
Dairy Business Milk Marketing Cooperative
Our Mission Statement
DBMMC persistently provides leadership and influence on federal policy issues, with a strong focus towards dairy policy; ensuring positive results for today and tomorrow's dairy producers.
