Milk dumping has begun.
West Bend, Wisconsin farmer Chris Elbe operates Golden E Dairy, where they supply milk to Dairy Farmers of America for fluid consumption. He tells Brownfield the first truckload went in the lagoon Tuesday night. “I was contacted by the section area manager and told that I need to start dumping as soon as possible, so I started dumping at eight-o-clock last night.”
Elbe says he’s milking 24-hundred cows and producing about 220 thousand pounds of milk every day.
