Oregon Statutes - Chapter 583 - Milk Marketing, Production and Distribution - Section 583.520 - Department to provide system for equitable payments to producers where no market pool exists; recognition of voluntary equalization program.

In the event the producers through petition or referendum pursuant to ORS 583.475 prevent a market pool from being established, or by referendum terminate and close a market pool, the State Department of Agriculture shall provide a system whereby each producer selling milk to a particular handler except for replacement milk shall receive the same price for Class 1 milk and for Class 2 milk of like quality, as every other producer selling milk to that particular handler and whereby each producer shall receive the minimum price established by the department under ORS 583.505. Such system which is for the purpose of assuring fair, reasonable and equitable treatment and payment for all affected producers, may take into consideration the existence, if any, of a voluntary equalization program established by contract between groups of producers.
