The Pennsylvania Milk Marketing Board requires a Pennsylvania  Milk Dealer Bond. This is a type of surety bond which functions as a form of protection for the Board by confirming that the bondholder, or principal, will pay all amounts due under the Milk Marketing Law, its amendments, and the regulations of the Milk Marketing Board.

The amount of the Pennsylvania Milk Dealer Bond amount is determined by the Pennsylvania Milk Marketing Board based on the applicant’s financial condition and the volume of milk they anticipate selling. However, the bond amount must be at least 75% of the highest aggregate amount owed by the milk dealer to all producers for a 40-day period during the preceding 12 months. For example, if a milk dealer had an average monthly milk purchase of $10,000, their bond amount would be $7,500. If a milk dealer had an average monthly milk purchase of $50,000, their bond amount would be $37,500.

The bond amount is required to protect milk producers from financial losses in the event that a milk dealer fails to pay them for the milk they have purchased. The bond is also required to protect the Pennsylvania Milk Marketing Board from financial losses in the event that a milk dealer fails to comply with the Milk Marketing Law.
