We purchased 2 gallons of milk for $3 at WalMart today. We price matched to do that. Milk is around $1.57 to $1.67/gal on sale for some time in southern Arizona.
If price supports and market restrictions go away, milk prices will go down significantly.
Lots of Dutchmen immigrated to those areas. Most of the Dutch dairymen in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties moved their operations to the east side of the mountains decades ago. The Sunnyside area Was a popular destination.

Of course, this is one of the ways they get bills passed, the farm bill is on the must have passed list and the demwits want to continue to pay farmers NOT to grow food while the world is starving in many countries. Our food pantries are begging every night on the local propaganda machine for food for the poor and homeless. And I bet they are doing so in all cities across the nation.
Our commodities give away has tripled in 3 years, these are mostly very old and infirm people who do not qualify for food stamps, while the ILLEGAL INVADERS can get them.
We limit our giving to Salvation Army, Alpha Omega House for recovering addicted veterans, AM VETS, and St Judes or Le Boheur (SP?) children’s hospital. NO DOUBLE CROSSING red cross for us. We are retired Military and know to much about them.
You pegged it. Between the dry spells, and the fact that much of our corn than would go to feed for farm animals is going in our gas tanks...which means farmers are planting more of it than other things like soy, wheat, or other farm animal feed.
They have already said pork prices would double, beef has been high for over a year as it is.
We have a lot of kudzu that back fired government import here in the south they could harvest for ethenol. It is smothering other growing things including trees, creeping over road beds, etc.
I got a gallon of 0 fat milk for the mister yesterday for $3.15, and paid $3.04 for gas with the 3 cents off.
Plan a run on the Commissary to stock up on canned milk to cook with, I like the taste better than that watered down stuff he uses on his cereal. Cooking and cereal eating are the only reasons milk is in the house. I sure don’t drink it, never liked it tastes like water with out the fat content in it.
These doctors and their low cholesterol eating have taken all the fun and taste from food. Add in low sodium diets and it all tastes like cardboard.
Have you noticed that plastic undigestible margarine now equals or surpasses REAL BUTTER in prices? And sure does not taste as good as it use to or as BUTTER does. I use BUTTER, if I have to pay those kinds of prices for the stuff it will be the REAL stuff BUTTER.
