Dairy farmers are being forced to dump thousands of gallons of milk down the drain due to the economic slowdown resulting from coronavirus fears.
The dairy industries of the United States and Canada are suffering mightily because of the coronavirus panic. Even as individuals are desperate to buy essential goods and stock up for a crisis, there is far too much supply for the moribund consumer markets.
John Walker of Walker Dairy Inc. in Ontario said that he has been jettisoning his milk supply since last week due to the economic crunch.
“There is just nowhere for it to go,” Walker said to CTV News London on Sunday. “Schools, restaurants, and even Tim Hortons’ amount of cream is down. Those are all things that have slowed down demand for our product right now.”
“The dramatic changes in demand and the related challenges being felt throughout the supply chain have resulted in the need for the disposal of some raw milk, which is extremely unfortunate and difficult,” the Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) said in a statement released last week.
Nikki Boxler, who owns and operates the Boxler Dairy in Varysburg, New York, says that her small, family-owned dairy farm is in shambles.
“Watching your hard work literally go down the drain is heart-wrenching. The wasted product represents our livelihood and the massive amount of hard work that takes place year-round to produce it,” she said Sunday in a Facebook post.
Boxler believes that the dairy industry is suffering due to milk’s perishable nature. This is causing the industry to be “hit harder and earlier than other agricultural commodities” by her estimation.
One Wisconsin farmer was forced to dispose of an incredible 56,000 pounds of milk, citing restaurant closures as being particularly devastating to his farm.
“It’s really depressing,” said Mark Mueller, owner of Mueller Dairy Farm. “It’s like all your hard work just running down the drain.”
Wisconsin dairy farmers are asking for a bailout from the U.S. Department of Agriculture in order to stay afloat. They hope to receive the assistance through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or CARES Act until normalcy can be returned, if that is even possible at this point.
While alarmists like Dr. Fauci call for an open-ended shutdown of society to fight coronavirus, millions of lives are being destroyed due to the economic damage caused by the government overreach. The dairy industry is the canary in the coalmine, and the rest of the market is likely to follow.
SUCKERS: Unions That Endorsed Biden for President are Already Having Serious Buyer’s Remorse
What were they thinking endorsing Biden?
Certain unions that endorsed President-imposed Joe Biden prior to his military installation in the White House on Jan. 20 are already having major buyer’s remorse over the Democrat figurehead’s job killing policies.
One of Biden’s policies that has killed jobs is ending the Keystone XL pipeline. This is expected to kill at least 10,000 union jobs, as President Trump’s “America First” agenda is abruptly reversed.
It is estimated that 42,000 union jobs may be eliminated because of Biden’s order.
Biden cancelled the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline. Just a stroke of the pen for Joe but now 42,000 union jobs are gone, American independence on oil is gone and we are back to depending on foreign nations. Im looking at every Republican “do-gooder” right now.

The unions are not happy with this immediate betrayal from a Biden administration that had claimed on the campaign trail they were going to build the nation back better.
“In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1,” Mark McManus, the president of the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters, said in a statement Thursday.
“Sadly, the Biden Administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work. For the average American family, it means energy costs will go up and communities will no longer see the local investments that come with pipeline construction,” he added.
However, McManus only has himself to blame for these policies with his union backing Biden last year. They sold their country out and now they’re paying the price for their own lack of foresight and patriotism.
We don't sit on the sidelines at the UA. That's why we're endorsing @JoeBiden.
On infrastructure, energy, retirement security, and union rights, Joe will make sure UA members have a seat at the table – and he'll help us win more work with good wages and benefits. pic.twitter.com/Up9VymMrO4

Big League Politics reported on Biden’s hostility to the working man on the campaign trail, as he represented foreign interests and the corporate elite with his candidacy:
Today while campaign in a new auto plant in Michigan Joe Biden was met with some criticism concerning his stance on the Second Amendment from one of the local auto union worker.
The unnamed auto worker told the former Vice President and current delegate leader to be the Democrat nominee, “you are actively trying to end our Second Amendment right”, to which Biden responded “You’re full of sh*t”.
After Biden told the union worker that he was “full of sh*t” a female campaign staff member tried to move the former Vice President along, but was met with “no, shhhh, shhh”.
Biden then went on to point his finger in the face of the auto worker telling him that he doesn’t need to own a “AR-14” and that he will slap the auto worker.
The auto worker’s concern over Biden’s Second Amendment policy may be based on Biden’s announcement on March 4th where he said that anti-gun and failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke “will be the one who leads” his gun-control effort.
The union bosses took the Democrat blood money and sold their workers out. Union corruption is a big reason why so many American jobs have been sent off shore over the past several decades.
