07/09/20 - Fed Ordered One-Pay Price For Milk is Abominable
Host and American Family Farmer Doug Stephan www.eastleighfarm.com begins with news that COVID19 Food Assistance programs have been extended through August. Next, news about how farmers are dealing with the Summer Heat. Then, we meet Iowa State University Professor Andy VanLoocke. https://www.agron.iastate.edu/people/andy-vanloocke and http://faculty.agron.iastate.edu/vanloocke/ Andy's passion for atmospheric sciences started in undergrad when a professor showed him the impact the science would make on the world. After getting his Masters and PhD, he joined the Agronomy faculty at Iowa State. His time is divided between teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses and researching how our use of the land might impact agro-ecosystem processes in tandem with global change. Finally, Farmer Doug opines about the ridiculous Federally mandated One-Pay Price for Milk Producers and he suggest how we might fix it.
