CWT Program Starts Herd Buyout Bidding in October
As a result of rapidly declining milk prices, as well as recent increases in both the number of cows in the national herd and overall milk production, the CWT Committee has approved operating plans for the second year of the CWT Program that include a tentative start date for a second herd retirement program on October 1st.
The Committee voted to allocate 80% of this year's
funds to the Herd Retirement Program, and 20% to the Export Assistance
Program. Those allocations will include the use of the remaining
monies left over from the CWT’s first fiscal year of operations,
which ended June 30th.
