Wisconsin dairy producer Jan Morrow dumped two days' of milk production in protest of low milk prices Monday. http://www.kare11.com/news/news_article.aspx?storyid=679899&catid=2
 
 Reminiscent of the 1960s of National Farmer Organization protests, Morrow opened the spigot on her bulk tank and allowed 3,500 lb. of milk to drain away. She says she's losing $4,000 per month on her 50-cow herd because of milk prices that are far below the cost of production.
