Today I broke down and cried... no, not because I had a bad day, or because someone said mean things. I got home from work, and like any other day, I got on Facebook and started scrolling. As I did, my heart began to sink. Friend after friend started changing their profile picture frames to “I support dairy farmers”. And every couple posts I see news articles about suicide prevention for dairy farmers. I cried because this is something so special and something so close to my heart. Dairy farming is my entire world. That’s my passion. That’s what I love. That’s me. I cry because I’m scared for our future. I cry because my family is a victim of this country failing our dairy farmers. I cry because I lived through the pain of losing MY farm and cows. And now I’m seeing it happen to the rest of the dairy farming community.

We'll get it from the farmers selling raw milk on the black market. Small family farms - and small family farms are not 90 cows.
