A delegation of dairy farmers from the Michigan Milk Producers' Association will take up the cudgel before the U. S. Department of Agriculture in Washington in their fight to obtain realistic adjustments in the Federal Order governing marketing of milk in the Detroit area. This was announced today by Glenn Lake, president of the Association, who said that the Association's Detroit sales committee has vigorously protested the disinclination of the Department of Agriculture to grant price relief to dairy farmers in the order which already have been obtained by direct negotiation with milk dealers. Lake pointed out that changes which have been tentatively disallowed by the Department of Agriculture would more nearly meet •the economic conditions in the mar ket reflected by the present negotiated price for Class I milk, and would serve the interests of both the dairy farmer and the public. He said exceptions to the USDA viewpoint would be filed in a brief to be presented in Washington by the farmer delegation before the end of the month. Notice to this effect was contained in a telegram to the USDA vigorously protesting the Government's position on the price aspects of tiie Detroit market order. Text of the telegram follows: Honorable Ezra T. Benson Secretary of- Agriculture Washington, D. C. "The Detroit market sales committee of the Michigan Milk Producers' Association, representing 85 percent of the total number of producers on the Detroit market, officially and vigorously protests the tentative decisions of the US DA marketing service denying Class I milk price relief to farmers in the Detroit marketing area, and takes definite exception tofobr' tain other indicated rulings /with respect to changes sought in the federal order. On still others we are fully in accord and jare most appreciative. y' -"Specifically,' the committee, "feels- that your'* proposals doi 'hot reflect au proper appraisal of the hearing record with respect to economic conditions prevailing in this m-airket, particularly as related to the intent of the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act to assure a fair and "reasonable return to the farmer in the price he receives for his product. At the level of prices indicated the supply ' of milk for the public in Detroit is in great jeopardy. More (Continued on Page Four) SIGN UP OR SHUT UP!
