Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Stand up for rural America while you still can
Grist - 6/17/2009.
By Dave Murphy – The assault on rural America continues unabated. For the past six months dairy farmers across the country have suffered a historic drop in milk prices while operating costs remain high. Since December 2008, the price that farmers are paid for the milk they produce has plunged over 50 percent, the largest single drop since the Great Depression.
