  • Supply and demand means nothing in this country. Profits are the only thing that matter. And if your not a real big wheel then your not going to get to turn. Dairymen are constantly lied to,big and small! The real story will never be told! Just my opinion. The ones on the buying, hauling and processing side live good and the producers live like slaves. You could be getting a 90 lb average and making some money. You know what,? it cost a lot of money to maintain a 90 lb average. Greedy Bastards keep right on rolling!! JMO
