If people knew the amount of labor that goes into producing a gallon of milk, they would pay $10.00/gal. and tip the farmer besides!
When farm subsidies are considered, we are already paying more for a a gallon than the sticker price.

The insidious vermin in government make sure they obfuscate the REAL cost of so many products by hiding them behind subsidies and a central planned economy.
Were the free market forces allowed to exist the REAL cost of milk would be much lower albeit a shakeout of those dairy farms which are only still in operation because of government (AKA OUR) support.
The dairy business is a very tough life and those willing to be in that business deserve to be paid a good profit for their efforts more so than some 3 piece suit exec. who is paid well in excess of their benefit to a company.
I site as an example of the French Canadian POS who ran what was the world’s largest commercial printer into bankruptcy all while collecting over $6 Million (US) in bonuses each year during the death spiral.
Like a stopped watch being right twice a day, this is one of the few areas where the OWS scum were correct.
You got it right but I have to say that I wouldn't pay that much money for something I really can do without. Just like I did with Orange Juice.
I’d pay $10 for real fresh outta the cow milk but not for that watered down slop sold at the grocery stores.
Unless you’ve got 100-lb calves that you’re trying to fatten into 1000-lb cattle, I can’t think why the price of cow’s milk should be a major concern for any of us humans.
