Wisconsin farmers forced to dump milk as coronavirus slams a fragile dairy economy
[link to www.wisconsinrapidstribune.com (secure)]

About 7 o’clock Tuesday night, Golden E Dairy got the call that any dairy farmer would dread. They were being asked to dump 25,000 gallons of fresh milk a day because there was no place for it to go as the marketplace for dairy products has been gutted by the closure of restaurants, schools, hotels and food-service businesses.

An hour later, the family-run farm near West Bend opened the spigot and started flushing its milk into a wastewater lagoon — 220,000 pounds a day through next Monday.

It was surreal, said Ryan Elbe, whose parents, Chris and Tracey Elbe, started the farm in 1991 with about 80 cows and grew it into an operation that today milks 2,400.

“We thought this would never happen,” Elbe said. “Everybody’s rushing to the grocery store to get food, and we have food that’s literally being dumped down the drain.”

Makes no sense, they are distributing milk nationwide thru the school lunch program at closed school parking lots and bus stops. Kids are getting weeks supplies of milk cartons

They could ultra pasteurize it and box it up like Parmalot. Has a long shelf life and still tastes great.

So lower the price, and more will be purchased by the consumer.

Why don't they give it away rather than just dumping it??

Terrible situation.

When I went to the store on Sunday there were no dairy products, no butter at all, and only 3 plastic gallons of skim milk, no half and half or cream, and very little cheese.
