(1) The State Department of Agriculture within 60 days after June 4, 1963, shall determine and establish primary markets. In addition to other guideposts and standards set out in ORS 583.001, 583.004, 583.021, 583.028 and 583.410 to 583.565, the department may take into consideration:
(a) Centers of processing and distribution of milk and milk products, on which producers, regardless of their location, depend for a market.
(b) Locations or combinations of locations with similar marketing conditions, where substantial quantities of milk are received and processed and from which such milk is distributed for sale in consumer channels.
(2) Primary markets may be established, changed, amended or terminated only after a public hearing has been held by the department in each established market area or in a proposed new or enlarged or reduced market area. When practical and if the interests of the milk industry will be more adequately protected, a hearing may be held in each established primary market area or proposed primary market area.
