    $8.00 a gallon for Milk

    Saw on the news this morning that subsidies for milk producers have not been renewed, and that the price of milk could skyrocket to $8.00 per gallon at the end of the year. OUCH!!

    Can we switch to an alternative milk source?

    Should we invade the milk producing states?

    Can we go green?

    Have heard this the past three years. It won't happen. I love milk but there are other sources of calcium.

    That's about what I pay now for UHT (shelf life) 8oz milk boxes. I got frustrated buying milk even by the quart only to have it opened and only a few ounces used for cereal and then trown out. I started buying the juice box style milk boxes at Whole Foods. I get them on sale for about $8.00 and its a little more than a gallon of milk.

    I get emails damn near everyday from food purveyors about market speculation. A good part of it is created by the industry hype machine. I'm hoping this is one of them as I drink a metric fukton of milk

    I like milk but I've often pondered how strange it is that we drink milk from another species. I over think sometimes.
