Turning milk into beer
Milk dairies are failing or making beer. We aren't drinking as much cow milk as we used to. Prices are way down, driven by high supply and falling demand. We prefer soy, nut and other milks, and Greek yogurt. A typical dairy farm in Massachusetts gets about 16 cents per pint of milk; its brewery operations get $7 for a pint.
