Editorial: A stark visual to dairy's reality

Posted on March 22, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



The decline in the number of dairy farms in Vermont has been steady for the past 70 years, even as milk output increases and the economic contribution to the state remains significant.

Phil Scott for his signature this session.

Posted on March 22, 2018 |
By Jerome B. Robinson



I applaud Gov. Phil Scott’s pursuit of laws that would prevent mass murder in Vermont.
