Here is an interesting article from NPR about the record low prices that dairy farmers are currently being paid for their raw milk.

According to the article, there has been a 40-50% drop in prices paid for raw milk to dairy farmers in 2009 compared to 2008, while Dean Foods’ (Horizon Organic milk and Land O’Lakes milk) profits gained 31% in the second quarter of 2009.
