California Department of Food and Agriculture

Milk and dairy products are the leading commodity group in California agriculture, with a value of more than $7.6 billion in 2011. This level of output establishes California as the largest dairy state in the country and a world leader in production. Due to significant changes in the marketplace in recent years and months, interest in the milk pricing structure in California is increasing. In response to that, CDFA has created a web page, How Milk Pricing Works, to address questions about regulated milk pricing in California.
