WASHINGTON, March 1, 2005 - The U. S. Department of Agriculture today issued an interim order amending a pooling
provision of the Arizona-Las Vegas Federal milk marketing order.
The interim order was approved by Arizona-Las Vegas dairy farmers. This interim order implements a provision that eliminates the ability to simultaneously pool milk on the Arizona-Las Vegas milk order when the same milk is already pooled on a state-operated milk order that has marketwide pooling.
The interim amendment will become effective on April 1, 2005. As announced on Jan. 3, exceptions will become effective on April1, 2005. USDA will consider the exceptions and issue a final decision.
