The California Quota Implementation Plan (QIP), which has regulated the minimum prices for the state’s dairy products since its 1960s implementation, will remain in effect after a vote to phase out the QIP plan by March 2025 failed to pass this week. The statewide quota plan was originally established at the urging of producers to set minimum prices for all Grade A milk and required the pooling of income from Class I (milk) and some Class II (soft dairy) products. In recent years, some producers have challenged the plan needed reform and no longer favored producers. See the voting margins.
