WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 21, 2006 - The U. S. Department of Agriculture today announced a recommended decision to adopt amendments to the pooling provisions of the Mideast milk marketing order.

The amendments recommended for adoption would:1) Establish a limit on the volume of milk a handler may pool during the months of April through February to 115 percent of the volume of milk pooled in the prior month; and 2) Establish a limit on the volume of milk a handler may pool during the month of March to 120 percent of the volume of milk pooled in the prior month.
