Description

This study was undertaken to (1) gather data on current marketing situations including milk volume and utilization, prices paid to producers, and rates charged for hauling milk in the federal order and state order areas, and (2) to determine the economic and related impacts of expanding the Boston regional order into Northern New England. Emphasis was placed upon the expected impact on producers but implications for milk dealers and consumers also were considered. The main focus was on Maine and Vermont situations but some data were also collected on the non-federal order markets of New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
