This rule amends the producer handler definition to limit exemption from pooling and pricing provisions of the orders to those producer-handlers with total route disposition and sales of packaged fluid milk products to other plants of 3 million pounds or less per month.

These amendments were considered in a recommended decision published 21 October 2009, and adopted by a final decision published 4 March 2010. The final rule appears in the Federal Register. The amendments will be effective 1 June 2010.
