WASHINGTON, Nov. 20 2006 The U. S. Department of Agriculture today announced that it will hold a national public hearing to consider proposals seeking to amend the Class I and Class II milk price formulas applicable to all Federal milk marketing orders. Evidence will also be taken at the hearing to determine whether emergency marketing conditions exist that would warrant omission of a recommended decision.

The hearing was requested by National Milk Producers Federation to reconsider formulas for Class I and Class II milk.
