Amendment to monthly final producer payment date.
Action 764
General Information
Action Summary The amendment to this regulation changes the final payment date made to producers or cooperative associations of producers by processing general distributors for deliveries received during a delivery period, usually a month. The change in the payment date will resolve inequities in payment dates made by state regulated processing plants and licensed fully regulated processing plants. Each federal milk marketing order has different requirements for this final payment date ranging from the 15th of each month to the 17th of each month. To resolve this the language of the regulation will be amended to require state regulated processing plants to make final payment on the 16th of the month and fully federally regulated plants to make the final payment in accordance with the milk marketing order under which they are regulated. This amendment will resolve inequities in the payment dates required of licensed processors.
