Sacrificing Cost for Value
Mike Hinkle wrote this opinion article for the Norman Transcript, about the financial sacrifices we should make in order to support local dairy farmers. He states that many family farms are going out of business because of animal care costs, and even though buying local milk could be more expensive, it would make a big difference.
Let’s talk milk. Before we pull up our milking stools and get down to business, I need to admit some biases.
First, I like milk. I like the taste of it and I like to cook with it. There are some recipes that allow for substitutes, but my default position is, use the real thing.
