Nice stable monopolies and cartels.
I would way rather pay a little more for my milk and not have dairy farmers going broke like they do in the USA every time the price drops too far. I think that marketing boards are great for the farmers , the country and so therefore ultimately the consummer. It creates price stability, and farm stability. You just have to look at commodities that lack controls here , like hogs to see the huge difference for the producers. It's one of the things that will keep some family farms in business rather than a complete takeover by corporate farming!!!

I haven't bough milk in about 15 years or more...so meaning ever really...until now. We have an exchange student who drinks whole milk, so I buy it for him. I think a gallon is around $3.69-$3.99 at Publix. My daughter and I only drink soy milk and that is about $2.50-$3 for a half gallon. Hubby doesn't drink any milk regardless.

i would not and i think your growth hormone issue is a load of bs.

i got whole milk at aldi yesterday for 3.09. gonna pick up some skim at costco because thats cheaper at costco (i posted earlier in theis thread, i think 2.79).

its funny, i saw one grocery store advertising 4.99 a gallon in a circular. its amazing how different the price can be for basically the same product.

In Canada, no cow can be given artificial hormones to increase its milk production. This means that no milk, cheese or yogurt produced in Canada contains these hormones.To optimize milk production, our farmers use state-of-the-art methods. These techniques do not require the use of hormones and are based instead on traditional good practices, meaning that cows are kept healthy and well fed.Although Health Canada does not permit the use of recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST), this growth hormone is legal and considered safe in the U.S. and other countries.Hormones for Cows?

We don't use gallons as a measurement here. I buy soy milk in 1 litre cartons for £1.89. Cow's milk is much cheaper.
