Milk Control Quota System & Licensing
THE QUOTA SYSTEM
The Milk Control Bureau keeps records of each producer's daily quota. The Bureau tracks the buying and selling of daily quota among producers. The quota system is very important to the producers because this daily quota is used by the bureau to calculate what each producer will be paid each month.
A producer, producer-distributor, distributor, or jobber may not engage in the business of producing or selling milk in Montana without having obtained a license from the Milk Control Bureau. There is a $2 annual fee which goes to the Montana general fund. In addition to the license required by our bureau, the Milk and Egg Bureau also requires a license, both of which are necessary to do business in Montana.
