Dave Crawford: Keep dairy prices in line with country

April 10, 2013 

What the lawmakers should do is put in Assembly Bill 31 that the milk price to the consumer will not change.

If you look at the price the farmer gets -- according to the article, $1.27 a gallon -- and the price at the store is $3.27 (or in that range), and according to the article, the dairy farmers paid most of the price to the middleman.

Who gets the $2? Or should I say, where does $2 go?

Make the brokers absorb the cost and keep the price at the register the same.

California dairies should be in line with the rest of the country. Say yes to AB31.
