Re: “Walters: Nothing to See Here, Say Senators

I have a tenant who pays over a thousand a month in rent. He distrusts banks so he doesn't have an account.

Re: “Unlikely Allies Seek to Make Vermont's Milk the Cream of the Industry

The comments Secretary Allbee states as causing a need for change are no different than they have been for decades. His points could have been made more than once in each of the last four decades. Both conventional and organic dairy farmers have their struggles and yet both survive. There are fewer farms as counted by the government but the land being farmed, number of cows milked, etc have changed little if any. Most farms are consolidated. Instead of each family member buying their own farm they are joining together. This has made a huge difference in management styles and vacation opportunities. Having many owner/operators on a single farm can be a struggle but it does allow each to focus on their strengths instead of having to be a jack of all trades. Some owners are better at human resources, some crops and some might be more mechanically inclined. There is not a lack of young people looking to dairy as their future with passion and enthusiasm, my son being one of them.
