CWT More Thoughts
(click on image to enlarge)
On August 16, 2010 Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) released this: http://www.cwt.coop/sites/default/files/news_releases/CWT-export-assistance-bids-081610.pdf
CWT remains something of a mystery. Between National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) members and associate members, we have a pretty good list of those who are bumping cheese yields as noted on yesterday's post.
So, if NMPF and its subset CWT really wanted to enhance farm milk prices they could work to eliminate the practices of dramatically increasing yield. Unlikely.
Well, if a plant has gained all the so-call efficiencies, the pedal has to be to the floor all the time.
Maybe NMPF is working the farmer both ways. Too much cheese made because of tricks, which depresses prices. Then use the farmer's money to offshore the crap.
