COVID-19 Crushing the Dairy Industry
No one could foresee a crippling global pandemic. We are witnessing the decimation of the dairy industry.
The crisis playing out before our eyes is staggering. Dairy farmers are dumping milk into fields and down drains; retailers are limiting consumers dairy purchases; and farmers are left questioning if the milk they produce will be get picked up or if they will even get paid. The amount of fear and uncertainty surrounding our industry today is unprecedented.
