government 15 cent assesment on
milk production be directed
toward the creation ot a Penn
sylvania milk marketing program
According to the plan, dairy
farmers could approve 10 cents of
their deduction to be set aside for
promotion and nutrition education
programs through existing dairy
council activities in Pennsylvania.
The program would be conducted

state milk marketing program
would allow 10 cents of each
deduction “to be targeted strictly
for promotion of dairy products

Hallowell added
The Secretary emphasized that
participation in the program is on
a voluntary basis and that
dairymen will be notified by mail
in the near future to seek the
support of those not already
contributing to a federal order
promotion program
The program will be ad

comprised of participating
dairymen and be chaired by the
Secretary of Agriculture.
