The first Milk Control Law was enacted January 2, 1934, amended April 30, 1935, and replaced April 28, 1937, when the Pennsylvania Milk Control Commission was established as a permanent state government agency. The creation of the Milk Control Commission was an outgrowth of the chaotic marketing conditions existing in the 1930s. During this time prices paid to milk producers fell to one dollar per hundredweight or lower. Home delivered milk was $.10 per quart. Pricing wars and destructive competitive practices were prevalent in many markets.
