You are correct. The current

You are correct. The current price paid to farmers has "no" component of production cost incorporated into the formula the government uses when it circumvents the market to feed their friend in the processing industry. The small and diverse farms like ones you might envision, including and especially family farms, are little more than serfs on their own land normally indebted heavily to the same government that loans them money to operate as they set the price of their product.

The real story here is the complete monopolization of the American fluid milk market by Dean Foods.
Google: Dean Foods monopoly
What you will find here is the MSM filtered version of an industry group that is in complete collusion with government and benefiting from its monopoly status achieved through our crony capitalist corrupt system.
