(1) The production, processing, distribution and sale of fluid milk for human consumption are attended by conditions which adversely affect the general welfare and result in 90 to 95 percent of the total milk production in the United States being marketed under federal and state stabilization regulations, deemed necessary to protect the interests of producers, distributors and consumers. It is therefore declared to be the policy of the State of Oregon, which imposes regulations on milk producers to assure a wholesome product for the benefit of the consuming public, to provide the necessary assistance and authority to maintain a stable milk market, to sustain the economy of the dairy industry and the economic welfare of the state and to assure an adequate and healthful supply of milk and milk products for the consuming public.
