We are Losing Hundreds of Family Dairy Farms Each Year in the USA
This petition had 30,422 supporters
Currently dairy farmers are losing approximately 50-60 cents a gallon on all the milk they produce. This is the reason we are losing so many family dairy farms in the United States.
The national production of milk is approximately 204 billion pounds of milk annually which means that dairy farmers are losing $5 per 100 pounds. Nationally this means the dairy farmers are losing over $10 billion each year. This translates into about a $60 billion loss for the rural economy.
THIS CANNOT CONTINUE! WE NEED YOUR HELP IMMEDIATELY! THIS CAN BE CORRECTED!
We are urging the United States Congress and the Dairy Division of the USDA to have open hearings for dairy farmers to hear and hopefully resolve their problems. We have outlined specific programs congress can take to correct this problem. Please refer to the "Dairy Farmers Are Left Behind Again" guest editorial by Arden Tewksbury located on the Progressive Agriculture Facebook page to view suggestions where congress can help dairy farmers.

Consumers, you must decide; Do you want to be drinking milk from the USA or milk imported from other countries? The decision is up to YOU! Act NOW and sign this petition! Thank you!
