Speaking of milk prices

Postby Jogeephus » Tue Jul 17, 2018 8:25 am

Here is the receipt for two gallons of milk I bought last week. Seems to be holding at $1.25 gallon. I've been upping my consumption trying to help the dairyman via the supply and demand thing. My dog is happy and thinks I'm a god because he's now getting two bowls a day. Water is a buck a gallon. This doesn't make sense to me.

I haven't drank milk since I was 10. Look at all the money I've saved. :lol:

But I identify as one who does qualify for food stamps so its obviously a clear case of discrimination which makes me feel so marginalized. And I'm still waiting on my free phone!

If anyone is truly suffering right now it’s the dairy farmers. But as in all situations, ones loss is another’s gain. Just ask your dog!

2% or whole? I use to drink a lot, but anymore a gallon probably would last me a week. Those dairy farmers I would say are on a very tight profit margin if any. It is a 7 day a week job milking twice a day and a lot of the other time making/buying feed for the cows.
