SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 24–27, 2006, the Department conducted a public hearing to consider changes to the manufacturing (make) allowances used to establish Class III and Class IV prices in all Federal milk marketing orders. During that hearing, evidence was presented to update plant manufacturing costs using the 2005 California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and the Rural Business Cooperative Service (RBCS) manufacturing costs surveys. Before a decision on whether or not to change the make allowances used in establishing Class III and Class IV prices, the Department would like to include in the analysis data on plant manufacturing costs currently being compiled by Cornell University or any other pertinent data or information that would be publicly available. The data being collected by Cornell University represents a cross-section of the entire dairy industry—large, medium and small plants from various geographical regions. Because of the significance of make allowance factors in Class III and Class IV pricing formulas on the dairy industry, the Department wants to be certain that the best possible data is available in making a decision concerning any possible changes. Accordingly, the Department is reopening the hearing to take additional evidence. The Department also is soliciting additional proposals that seek possible changes to other components of the Class III and Class IV price formulas. The Department recognizes the need to ensure that these pricing formulas are reflective of actual marketing conditions. Consequently, all interested parties are invited to submit proposals that address all components of Class III and IV pricing formulas. Proposals should be submitted by September 30, 2006.
