According to the farm bureau, there is not a shortage on milk.
In fact, dairy farmers across the Midwest, including here in Ohio, are having to dump their milk because the milk supply is getting too large for the processing plants to handle.
Officials say this in part because the milk that was being made for cheese and yogurt products in schools is having to be moved elsewhere due to closures. Now, that milk is being used to make more milk, instead of milk products.
Farms across Ohio, such as Hartschuh Dairy Farm in Crawford County, are reporting delays in milk pick-ups.
Hartschuh also confirmed that every producer who sends milk to their plant is dumping one pick up down the drain. Hartschuh is doing this as well.
