The fight for dairy price fairness

Here's some inside scoop on the milk you cherish. The American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) is on a mission. They're ensuring that the price tag on your milk carton is fair for everyone involved, especially the farmers. 

Danny Munch, from AFBF, explained something called 'make allowances.' It's the estimated cost for turning raw milk into our favorite dairy products. This decides what goes into the farmers' pockets at the end of the day. 

Now, AFBF suggests these allowances should be based on a super-detailed survey done by USDA. But there's a hiccup - the USDA currently can't conduct this survey. That's why AFBF is rallying for new rules, ensuring this survey is done right and is trustworthy. 

For AFBF, it's all about making the dairy game fair. Accurate pricing means happy farmers and happy customers. And we surely don't want any milk souring due to unfair prices.
