Dairy is a major ag industry here, now bigger than the famous potatoes. We have over 500k milk cows within 75 miles of here. Dairies with 2k to 5k cows are common and there are a few with 10k. Chobani's biggest plant is here and there are cheese factories scattered all over the place. This summer producers were getting record high prices for milk but their cost of production has gone nuts. Hay is WAY up and you know what the situation is with diesel.
Retail milk can be found around $2.75/gal and butter for under $3/lb.

Idaho got it's start in big dairying because of CA's idiotic environmental laws. They drove the big dairies out and they moved here.

You didn't get a fuuuking thing I said obviously.


After over head cost are still covered...

Then you make more with same amount as before at increased price in less amount of product.

Hello Mcfly.......

You are one of those who think profit inflation isn't going on???

I knew my post would bring out someone.
And then you select quote cause you got blinders on...
Can't cherry pick anything in my original post.
It lays out the bullschit going on..
Anyone who thinks otherwise is numb....

🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤣🤣🤣

Those are the operations driving ours out of business.

No way to earn a living with a couple kids and a hired man or 2, farming
5-800 acres and milking 80 cows. Not against the efficiency of a 5k head
herd, buying railcars of feed. Only a few people using turntables and other automation.


Is it bad, or evolution?

Both.

Two years ago we saw the affect of centralized food production.


Issues in 3 100 head milking herds are no big deal.

Same with a diary that serves 50 of those farms.

Little bump in the road.


Let 3-5 10k head herds get shut down and it's a problem.
Same with the Chobani plant.

Milk, cheese, yogurt....no huge deal if it became scarce for a bit.
But butter? :cry
No idea just what else might be affected.

We have what's needed for those big dairies - lots of room so they can be away from people. What we lack is another essential - water. A dairy like that uses a million gal a day or more. A cow needs 10 gal just for the milk she produces, in addition to body functions and cleanup. Many of the farms are now composting the manure and spreading it on their hay fields. Plants can use compost more efficiently and it reduces potential pollution in the water table.

If you want to buy some rural land here, you'd do well to carefully study Google Earth, looking for dairies and feedlots upwind of any property you're interested in. I've seen very very nice, low priced properties downwind of a dairy. They're sometimes impossible to sell.

One of my foster parents, to this day I have no idea how they made it into the system but the husband was always drunk. He loved ice cream too, he caught me eating it one evening. He hit me in the head with baking sheet knocked me out cold… chit hurt. Nugget

I thought, what the hell that seems different.

I’m not an old fart that drinks that everyday so that particular adjustment is “new to me”


And 52 ounces is more money than the 64 according to the grocery lady that shops for me

Well just take each dollar you pay for your groceries, take a pair of sissors and trim 20% of your dollar bill off, and pay them with those...

Let them receive your dollars, that are worth less, when they give you less product..

Turn about is fair play...

Might not be what it seems? Could be inflation, could be they just switched suppliers? I'd not be surprised if the new casing came from Turkey and was cut to a different standard?

LaLa is the big dairy outfit in Mexico. When I was working in Torreon, we drove past several of their dairies each day. Approx 5k head per set up. All dry lot. Alfalfa was grown in long strips. Flood irrigated. The strips were exactly 6x the width of the cutter head on the swather. Swather would make 3 trips down the field and back. Move to the next strip. I did not see any alfalfa being baled. Only saw green chop in the back of two and three axle trucks being moved to the cows. IIRC, they said 10 to 11 cuttings per year. 3 weeks per cutting in warm weather. 4-5 weeks in cool weather.

About the only things that haven't been reduced are a gallon of milk and a pound of butter.



too funny

You can still get 4 pounds of falls brand there for only $20. Maybe it's a regional thing but it's good bacon. Used to be $10-$12 at times.

this guy has a website dedicated to "shrinkflation"

https://www.cnet.com/personal-finance/what-is-shrinkflation/

I heard him talking about Kroger changing the "fill line" on the cap of their cough syrup and cutting the number of active ingredients in half.
