You don’t have to dig very deep to discover that Wisconsin’s dairy industry is in deep trouble. Falling wholesale prices for all commodities, including milk, collapse of international markets thanks to the Trump Administration’s trade wars, skyrocketing land values, climate change and ongoing challenges of managing manure, have all contributed to a record number of farm closures across the Dairy State. Since 1979, Peter Hardin has made a career of bucking the dairy establishment, as editor and publisher of his alternative farming journal, “The Milkweed.” Hardin has some ideas about where to go with dairy farms in this state, and he joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on November 4, 2019.
