Dairy farmers are struggling due to the lower prices of milk, so they’re trying to find ways to decrease the milk supply. Some are joining forces to send more of their cows to slaughter. Others are calling upon the government to take some dairy products off the shelves. But while it might cause the dairy industry to rebound sooner, some say it’s having unintended consequences on the beef industry. KSMU’s Jennifer Moore reports.
One year ago, Missourians couldn’t stop talking about the high price of milk: at many grocery stores it was selling for about four dollars per gallon. Today, that price has dropped considerably. This reduced price of milk, combined with the rising costs it takes to maintain a herd of dairy cows, has led to a crisis for many of the state’s dairy farmers. Several have had to send their cows to slaughter, and others are selling their assets or sinking further into debt. They have appealed to Governor Jay Nixon and the state for help, but so far, little has come in the way of relief. KSMU’s Jennifer Moore has this report.
