This coalition has been formed to promote the DPSP as a viable, long-term strategy for the U.S. dairy industry. With four major economic wrecks in the dairy industry in the last ten years, it has become clear to many that this boom/bust cycle in the milk price is more than an anomaly - it's a product of our system. As an industry, we need to re-align the incentives that exist for individual dairy farmers, and the DPSP is a common sense proposal that does exactly that.
