Pay more for dairy products – save farmers

Pay more for dairy products – save farmers

Milk is displayed with a Keep Local Farms sign in Burlington, Vt. The Keep Local Farms program – set up in 2009, a year of record low milk prices paid to farmers – urges colleges, universities and other institutions in New England to charge a little more for their milk. Proceeds will go to dairy farmers in the region, which has lost 66 percent of its dairy farms in 30 years because of low milk prices paid to farmers and high production costs.
