First off, Its the creameries and processors who are causing the milk prices to jack up, the dairy farmer is still getting crapped on in a bad way,
and has been for years.
As for drinking store bought milk, I ask people why? They have taken every good thing out of it by pasteurizing and Homogenizing it, so in a sense
there really is no use for drinking milk, that is unless your getting it fresh out of the tap, Like i have been my entire life.
This whole debate about raw milk sickens me to death. I've drank from many a bulk tank over the years and im not drying of some disease, nor has
anyone else i know that drinks raw milk. In fact its been over 20 years since i was last sick come to think about it. I may catch a mild cold, but its
gone in less than 24 hours. The last time i had the flu or anything serious was when i was a child. I also have drank my share of Colostrum as well,
and anyone that thinks that is gross, you should have it before letting the mental image turn you off on it. Colostrum has been a big part in many
dairy families lives around here.
As for the price of milk doubling, I've been seeing this coming for a time. Input costs are though the roof right now as far as livestock goes. With
last years yields, It was bound to.
Just be glad you not a Hog producer, there are, and going to be many more loosing it all. except the corporate owned farms of course. The small guy is
a thing of the past, those of us who are still here have a short time left before its our turn. But of course that's exactly what they want.
