Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
If you like milk products, you may need to buy a cow
Kennebec Journal - 10/26/2009.
Letter to editor by Rebecca Myers Law – While the attention of the nation is focused on the health-care debate, a quiet death blow is being dealt to Maine's dairy farming tradition, as well as dairy farms large and small across the nation. With milk prices at $9 to $10 per hundredweight for most of this year, no producer can survive.

Some community members wanted the area immediately cleared and replanted to pines, others advocated letting nature take her course in the area, still others focused on the economic value of the fallen timber and advocated harvesting as the first priority, followed by replanting.
