DHIA Fee Increase

Fees to operate Southeast DHIA have not
changed since the merger in 2001. Due to
the pressures from decreased cow numbers,
the board voted to increase fees in 2007 by a
net of $0.01 per cow per month.

In order to collect for fixed costs of the
DHIA operation, the board chose to load the
increase toward the first 6 tests per year. The
decision was made to increase the monthly
fee enough to provide a discount on each
test after 6 in the calendar year. So the new
fees will show a 3 cent per cow increase for
the first 6 tests per year, with a 4 cent per
cow discount on each test for the remainder
of the calendar year.
