Max Armstrong looks ahead at June Dairy Month that starts Saturday. Max shares that the observance of this milk-promoting program comes under the cloud of a weakened dairy industry. A recent hearing in Washington, D.C., looked at the dairy crisis. The Census of Agriculture shows that 10,000 dairies gone out of business since the last Census, and more have failed since.
