Post-hearing comments on CDFA website
California's Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) has placed comments related to its Sept. 12 hearing on proposed temporary changes to Class 4b/whey factor pricing formulas at “Hearing Matrix” website. Submitting post hearing comments were:
CDFA Secretary Karen Ross had 62 days from the hearing to rule on the proposal. However, she also has to announce any changes 10 days before implementing them, so the effective deadline is 52 days from the close of the hearing if there will be any formula change.
CDFA has tried to avoid mid-month changes and implement formula changes on the start of a month.  If that practice continues, an announcement is likely around Oct. 21, impacting milk sales after Nov. 1
