Califronia San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego are full of crazy vegans who think doing anything to animals is cruel, they won't help, they'l cheer till the last dairyman goes bankrupt

FTFY

Please dont lump the rest of us into those others where they think they live in never-never land.

And this is only the tip of the iceberg, it is going to get way worse before it starts to get better.


I agree. The only thing that will help is for the price to go up and for that to happen a lot of producers are going to have to go out of business.

California is also at a competitive disadvantage when exported to other states which have lower taxes, transportation and other production costs.

The argument over government subsidies for growing and not growing corn aside. Starches used in alcohol production from corn are not used at all by the animals, they only use the proteins. Ethanol facilities SHOULD be selling these DDG's (the unused protein part) back to the farmers as feed/feed suppliment. Ethanol production should have little or no effect on feed prices at all.
