Iowa Dairy Industry Feeling Impacts of Trade War
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Milk prices are on the steady decline. It's good for consumers but not for dairy farmers. "Dairy farmers have been feeling prolonged low dairy prices. We need solutions as soon as possible," says Mitch Schulte, executive director of the Iowa State Dairy Association. The ISDA hopes it's in the form of a strong trade agreement. Since the start of this year, 80 dairy farms have been forced to shut down. Iowa dairy experts say the ongoing trade war is to blame.
