Great news for the buyer, there is a glut of milk and milk product in the market, this means we will see the cost per gallon of things like milk, butter and cheese go down. This is not good news for the farmers because no one wants to buy the surplus so the farmers are stuck dumping the milk down the drain. Seems pretty sad don't it? All this is due to excess milk available on the international market. Farmers are then left with the dilemma, feed the herd or pay the bills, usually cows get sold off. Here is what I do not understand about things like this- why if there is such an abundance that we can dump it out- do we still have starving people in the world today?
