It's a pretty crazy deal. How does that work? Do dairys get a subsidy so America gets cheap milk?Son of Butch":z634sct7 said:

We have not got ( https://www.fsa.usda.gov/Internet/FSA_File/milc_09.pdf ) MILC payments for quite awhile, or the boss hasn't been sharing his with me! I do not even think there is a program anymore, no 100% sure. Mail box milk price was $16 this check. I have cows in with my boss', I pay to raise my heifers is only expense. I get 50% of my milk back instead of getting a higher wage. Keeps me in check with current pricing and some more real life farming. But let me tell you it ain't fun milking cows right now with current price!Kingfisher":3ex1cvc5 said:

Right now I get my milk from a farm where I have a cow in the milking herd, but once my others calve, I will be doing some milking and using them as nurse cows also. I hope to go to cow/herd shares after I retire so that they will pay for their feed and give me a little for my time. We'll see.
