MIDDLETOWN, Md. (AP) — Some Maryland dairy farmers say last week's snow storm cost them hundreds of dollars when they were forced to dump milk.
Middletown-area farmers Jeremy Thompson and Glen Kinna told The Frederick News-Post on Tuesday that they each dumped thousands of pounds of milk because trucks couldn't get through the deep snow to pick it up.
They say cows must be milked twice a day. And once the farmers' tanks are full, they have no choice but to dump the excess.
Thompson also says he lost two cows when part of his barn collapsed under the weight of the snow.
