For the largest dairy in Arkansas that's good news but not entirely surprising.
"I don't think it's going to happen," said Walter Coleman, business manager of Coleman Dairy.
At issue: The fiscal cliff deadline approaching fast---had Republicans and Democrats not come to an agreement over a farm bill, the Dairy Security Act of 1949 would have gone into effect. As a result, it would have forced the federal government to pay more for milk it buys from the dairy industry.
"It is a scary thought...just like some of the scary thoughts that are going through conversations in Washington about a lot of other areas," Coleman said.
