Dairy Farmers need your help. We are getting paid less than a dollar per gallon while it is still over $3 in the store. Cheese is worse. Consumers and farmers are getting screwed while the processors and retailers are rakin in the profits. Something better change soon or the dairy industry will rely on imports (from China?) for all dairy foods.
We seem to gaining some momentum in DC. 300 farmers attened the ag comittee hearing yesterday, and our voice is starting to be heard. Your senators and reps need to hear a united voice from farmers and consumers.
Farmers need to demand that processors pay for trucking and to have the make allowance removed in the short term. Long term, there needs to be regs./reductions in imports, and an ivestagtion intot he milk pricing system.
Consumers...please demand that food safety be of the utmost importance. Many dairy products are being imported without your knowledge. KRAFT is the biggest culprit. Please let your reps know that this is unacceptable and that dairy products should only come from the US.
