Dairy panel pins hopes on Washington D.C. for price hike

By KATHRYN FLAGG
ADDISON COUNTY — A Vermont Milk Commission meeting last week ended in much the same way that many conversations about Vermont’s flagging dairy industry have ended this year: with state officials looking once again to Washington.

The commission’s July 23 meeting culminated with a resolution thanking Vermont’s Congressional delegation for its work in trying to increase prices paid to dairy farmers, and asking those delegates to convey to the White House and the Office of Management and Budget the “emergency nature of the needed aid” for dairy farmers.

Lawmakers seek relief for dairy farms

WASHINGTON, D.C. — When the Vermont Milk Commission meets late this week in Montpelier, undoubtedly the discussion will focus to the precarious state of Vermont’s floundering dairy industry.

It’s a conversation that has spread beyond Vermont, as lawmakers’ efforts to drum up support and attention to the dairy crisis ramped up in Washington, D.C., this month.

But it’s also a conversation that has some dairy advocates asking just what federal legislators can and will do to turn around the dairy slump.

Dogfight all in good fun when family takes flight

BRISTOL — A father-daughter sock hop? No thanks, say one Bristol dad and his daughter.

Tim and Molly Eaton, 50 and 18, respectively, prefer to do their bonding at 230 miles an hour, 8,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.

That’s how the two experienced a day in the life of a fighter pilot, through a program called Air Combat U.S.A. The program let the pair — both flight enthusiasts — pilot SIAI Marchetti SF-260 jets through air combat maneuvers with the assistance of trained fighter pilots.

ADDISON COUNTY — In a year when dismal federal milk prices have slammed Vermont’s dairy industry, unmooring the cornerstone of Vermont’s agricultural industry, some state legislators might be hard pressed to sound a note of optimism about the future of agriculture in Vermont.

Not Rep. Christopher Bray, D-New Haven. Ask Bray, and he’ll tell you the silver lining to the doom and gloom agriculture forecast boils down to two words: economic development.

ADDISON COUNTY — As reported cases of the swine influenza cropped up around the country, Vermont remained unaffected at midweek by the airborne, contagious disease that reached epidemic proportions in Mexico. Still, local and state officials said they were on the lookout for the disease should it spread, and one local high school stepped up precautions after a student trip returned from south of the border last week.

Dairy in Crisis - Part 3: Farmers seek lifeline for dairy industry

Posted on March 26, 2009 |

ADDISON COUNTY — As Vermont’s dairy farmers lose money on every gallon of milk they produce, dairymen these days are wondering if they’ll survive the latest downturn in the volatile milk market. The crash in the price farmers get for their milk has forced 24 Vermont farms out of business since December, according to the Agency of Agriculture.

But even if they make it through this current crisis — which, with its $10 and $11 per hundredweight (cwt) milk prices is admittedly the worst farmers have seen in years — the long-term outlook for the industry is murky.

BRIDPORT — As dairy farmers from around the county sat at tables at the Bridport Grange Monday for an annual lunch with legislators sipping coffee from paper cups emblazoned with “Vermont Milk,” the depressed price of milk couldn’t have been far from their minds. These days, farmers are selling their milk at prices well below the cost of production.
