Dairy farmers call for higher milk prices

by Chris Butsch

Milk is cheap, but small-to-medium-sized Wisconsin farms are hurting. Similar to how Walmart devastated mom and pop shops, mega-farms are hurting Wisconsin farmers, who are forced to sell milk too cheap to survive.

In response, the National Farmers Organization is proposing a two-tier milk-pricing system aimed at boosting revenue for farms with under 300 cows (which is most Wisconsin farmers). Produce less than a million pounds of milk per month, and you’ll get a $4 bonus for every 100 pounds.

The plan would level the national playing field without increasing the cost for consumers.
