ADPI Comments On USDA Decision To Utilize Surplus NDM
Friday, March 27, 2009 (2423 reads)

In response to USDA's announcement on utilizing surplus NDM in various domestic food assistance programs, Dale Kleber, Chief Executive Officer of the American Dairy Products Institute, commended "Secretary Vilsack for committing to use the increasing stocks of surplus NDM to help feed our country's needy families."   Kleber observed that it is also "beneficial for dairy markets to have an insight into how USDA intends to dispose of the large inventories of surplus NDM that overhang the market."

Kleber noted, however, that "ADPI has some concern . . . that under [USDA's] plan almost two-thirds of the surplus NDM will apparently be re-introduced into the market through the various bartering programs" where USDA intends to use NDM for other processed dairy products.  "Removing large quantities of surplus NDM from the market and subsequently re-injecting it into the stream of commerce through bartering results in a "revolving door" effect that may dilute the economic benefits of the Dairy Price Support Program,"  Kleber noted.
