The Dairy Lawsuits
Here is a good story on what is going on and why. This situation is affecting real people and real families.
Even if the suit succeeds it will be too late for many. Here is the auction listing for the family dairy farm of one of NY's handful of dairy bloggers and an online friend of ours. It is already too late for her and her family to recover from 18 months of prices far below the cost of production, and my heart aches for them. (Wish they lived a little closer so we could go to the sale to lend moral support if nothing else.) If you click on the farm name on the listing you can see a pdf of their cattle and machinery. They have some really lovely cows and it must be heart breaking to have to sell them.
