Dairy producers and other market participants will be sharing testimony starting Wednesday and continuing in future meetings to explore a wide range of proposals as USDA considers updates to the federal milk marketing order.

The FMMO hearing in Carmel, Indiana, will likely span between five to seven weeks as USDA staff listens to testimony on five different topic areas with a total of 22 proposals from industry participants. Each witness will have 60 minutes to present their testimony with an unlimited amount of time for direct cross-examination.
