Rick, the $7.00 a gallon milk was reported to be the price consumers would be paying at the store when the scare tactics were in play. If dairy farmers actually got $7.00 a gallon they'd be jumping for joy. Currently in my area farmers are getting about $19.00/cwt. $7.00/cwt would be about 58 cents a gallon to the farmer. At $19.00 it's $1.58 a gallon. But trucking and a lot of other stuff come out before the farmer gets his check and then he has to pay for the production of the milk.

I think we're arguing for the same point but coming at it from different directions.

Bret, I was responding the post that stated that 7 dollar milk to a farmer should be good. Pointing out that if a farmer is seeing that 7 buck per gallon but that means milk that is 7 per hundred weight. Not 7 per gallon. Lots of folks out there don't understand just how the farmer is paid. Like the going rate for beef or hogs. Nor do they understand the cost on in-puts to produce any marketable product to sell. It's really funny when talking to someone who doesn't understand that the whole pig or cow isn't prime cuts.
