June is National Dairy Month, a month that started as National Milk Month in 1937 as a way to promote drinking milk to stabilize the dairy demand when there was a production surplus.
Just like there is now.
Sixteen months ago, milk was at $26 per hundredweight (about 12 gallons). Now, it’s at $15 per hundredweight.
“There’s an over supply of milk worldwide,” said long time farmer, Joe Paul Mattingly.
