DUMPING DAIRY

Facing a long run of low prices, persistent oversupply issues and new milk quota system, some Illinois dairy farmers are voluntarily exiting the dairy industry. “It turned out to be a good decision when you look at the economics,” said Linnea Kooistra, who raised dairy cows with her husband in McHenry County since 1980 before giving up their herd last year. Other dairy farmers don’t have the luxury of making that choice. (FarmWeekNow.com)
