Senators Ask FDA to Review Floor Price for Raw Milk

A bipartisan group of senators from leading dairy states asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Monday, to review the floor price for raw milk. The letter written by Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Olympia Snowe (R-Me.), Susan Collins (R-Me.), Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Al Franken (D-MN).
The letter states, “Since June, the cost of corn and other components of feed have risen dramatically,” the letter continued. “Corn reserves have plummeted to a 15-year low. As we face this climate crisis, a consideration of the effects on milk prices would seem to be in order.”
There is no mention in the letter regarding corn used for ethanol.
