DFO Policy Booklet

These two policy books are a compendium of the major DFO Quota, Milk Transportation and Raw Milk Quality Program policies and procedures that apply to producers.

The policy books are periodically reprinted and sent to all licensed producers. Changes that have occurred since then are included in these electronic versions which have been updated to include various interactive links to make navigation easier. The on-line English versions of both documents were uploaded in February and April 2016. French updates will be available shortly. All changes to the documents are tracked in an appendix at the back of each book.

While the policy books cover most DFO or milk quality policy issues of concern to producers, they are not intended to include all of the policies or procedures of DFO. Producers should contact their DFO Field Services Representative or appropriate head office staff for clarification on issues that are not included in the policy books.
