Dairy farmers hate cows.
So do dairy workers.
And for good reason.
The industry is a disaster.
In fact, it’s already a disaster for farmers, dairy workers, and even the entire economy.
Dairy farms have long been associated with the worst of the worst in the human world.
Farmers and workers in America are paid about 25% less than the national average.
In many cases, they’re forced to live on food stamps, are at greater risk of homelessness, and face higher rates of disease and malnutrition.
And yet, many dairy farmers and dairy workers still don’t have enough cash in their bank accounts to buy milk and milk products.
The truth is, most people don’t want to buy dairy.
Many consumers and some dairy farmers don’t like the idea of spending the money that comes with paying the bills.
They’re afraid of what will happen to their milk and cows.

Dryads are an expensive commodity.
It costs $9,000 to produce a single kilogram of milk and $25,000 per kilogram to produce five.

Because of the cost of transportation.
That means the more you buy, the more expensive it is to transport the milk from your farm to your supermarket.
And then to deliver the milk to your doorstep.
It’s not just transportation; it’s also the cost for workers to transport, clean, and sanitize milk, to milk production facilities, to warehouses, and to dairy processing plants.
In the process of transporting milk from farm to supermarket, the dairy workers and the dairy farmers suffer.
Dairy workers are paid less than their factory workers, with the majority of the difference between them coming from wages that are lower than their unionized counterparts.
As a result, dairy farmers pay less in benefits and health care, pay lower wages, and lose health care and pensions.
It’s hard to get by.
One in five American dairy farmers, or about 13% of the U.S. dairy industry, are employed part-time.
That means that many are living paycheck to paycheck.
This is because dairy farmers use machinery and equipment to transport milk from the farm to the supermarket.
But because the machinery and the equipment are made in the U
