Independent Dairy Farmers' Struggle

NPR reports on a major concern related to a staple of the American diet, milk. With the price of raw milk at historic lows, dairy farms are going under across the United States. As the crisis deepens, many blame two dairy giants that they say are trying to monopolize the industry, to the detriment of independent farmers and consumers.

If you are interested in the milk and dairy business issues, you should also see our release MILK IN THE LAND about the history of America's favorite beverage (and how it became such)!
