    When we had too much cheese on the farm, we made a piece of toast, poured melted cheese on the toast. This was delicious with a shot of pepper on top. There went your diet, chubbs

    By the term, "...faces onerous and costly dairy regulations," I got the impression that meant more regulation. Perhaps I took it wrong.
    *Stupid cities actually have ordinances against people being capable of buying raw, unpasteurized milk within city limits.

    Nevertheless, if the fed gov't is going to cause a major shortfall in any businesses' sales, then said business is owed due compensation.

    Well...the bottom line is this. The Department of Agricultural Impediment, has Price Supports for milk.

    And those are provided by the government's buying up the surplus, holding the line - paying the dairy farmer while supporting the going price of milk.

    That milk is converted to cheese, under contract to DoA. And then is stored.

    It's not one farm, or one group of farms, with too much milk. It's GOVERNMENT INTRUSION IN MARKETS - which always is wasteful and winds up with skewed costs.

    Solution: School lunches and the military. Free cheese for those. THEN...END the price supports.

    In the end it won't matter, because most kids will be named Juan, Jose or Mohammed - and just as they hate me for my racial group, I give no phuks to them for their status as protected invaders.

    The American Dairy Coalition wrote an opinion piece for the Wisconsin State Farmer this week and said U.S. dairy farmers "are in a crisis."
    "Our milk price has dropped nearly 40 percent over the last four years. Cheese exports from the U.S. to Mexico are down more than 10 percent annually and shipments to China have fallen almost 65 percent annually," the story reads.
    "If this isn't bad enough, the industry faces onerous and costly dairy regulations, as well as a shortage of workers — making it hard to find a way each day to stay in business."
    That will still leave a lot of cheese sitting in government cold storage but will certainly make a whole lot of grilled cheese sandwiches. Yum.
    I donno..... Costco sells out of 26 lb. mac cheese tub with 20-year shelf life

    It's not to be sold on the open market.

    That's the problem. Storage is a dead end - government is not permitted to compete with commercial vendors.

    Remember the early 1980s? Cheese giveaways to everyone on Unemployment - and there were a lot of us. I was. Got a big brick of sliced, processed American cheese. Not bad in omelettes, but otherwise not-very-useful. But it was DONE...because then, as now, government was out of storage space for it.

    Give it to South America? They'll throw it away. The native tribes tend to be lactose-intolerant.

    Put it in the military logistics network. The kids on the front lines, will welcome it in their eggs, and their salads.

    That's a bunch of bologna. If the government is 'supporting the going price of milk', then how come Great Value Milk is $1.48 a gallon, Hiland is $2.48 or more, and Golden Royal is $2.75? Plus, if the government was buying up all the surplus, then how come the dairy farmers are scourged with the problem of so much surplus?

    The problem for the dairy farmers is that the government is NOT buying it, as was promised to them, to make up for the tariffs. Hence, the dairy farmers are barely scratching out a living.
    We OWE THEM, for having caused their circumstances w/the tariffs on steel and aluminum. What? You're willing to let the dairy industry die on the vine, while we wait for the tariffs to measure out?

    That's just not plain smart.

    Besides, in order to do as you suggest as a solution, FIRST the government would have to buy it, no?

    So, your answer is to pretty well just throw it all away, without compensating the producers. Great answer.

    Not to be old school but I just had to throw my two cents in. Who cut the cheese?

    Price supports on the wholesale level.
