As dairy farmers struggle through their fourth year of low milk prices, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for small family-owned farms to make a living. Many farmers say the price they’re getting for their milk is less than what it costs to produce. As milk prices continue to fall due to a global oversupply and lower prices overseas, many farmers are pleading with state and federal lawmakers to help. Join us in our Mountain Lake PBS studios for our latest town-hall-style community forum as we bring together farmers, political leaders, and members of the community to discuss what’s needed to keep family farms in business. Be part of our studio audience for the taping of the Community Forum on Monday, March 12th at 7pm here in our studios at 1 Sesame Street in Plattsburgh. Then watch our Community Forum: Dairy Farms in Crisis, Friday, March 16th at 8pm on Mountain Lake PBS.
Great local stories, previews of everything new, and invitations and updates on Mountain Lake PBS activities!
