Re: Drought Making Dairy Farming Tougher

As a personal friend of Mr. Gonzalez I will assure you he is not misleading you. You don't understand much about milk marketing or pricing. Just because the price of milk is high at Walmart doesn't mean dairy farmers are receiving a fair price. They receive about 21% of the retail price of milk. In addition, the milk price has certainly not kept up with the cost of inputs. Has milk doubled in cost in the last year no - yet oil has doubled and so has corn.
