WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec. 10, 2004-- The U.S. Department of Agriculture today announced a final rule that amends the Appalachian, Florida, and Southeast milk marketing orders. Dairy farmers approved the amended orders through the polling of cooperatives.

 
The final rule will implement a temporary supplemental charge on Class I milk to be disbursed to handlers who incurred extraordinary transportation costs for bulk milk movements to meet the Class I needs of the Appalachian, Florida, and Southeast orders as a result of hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne.

 
The final rule appears in today’s Federal Register and becomes effective today as well.

 
Additional information about the rule may be obtained from these market administrator officee:
