Dairy farmers met in Vermont Tuesday to discuss possible solutions to the milk-price situation that has proved so devastating over the past year.
Farmers must stop producing the excess milk (that causes prices to fall), Bob Wellington, senior economist for the Agri-Mark cooperative in New England, reportedly told those in attendance.
A number of people at the meeting discussed the idea of supply management, or perhaps more appropriately termed “production management.”
A national board could be appointed to manage growth and keep milk prices viable.
