I bought a gallon of milk at the grocery store today. For just one gallon.....$5!! There was a sign on the door to the cooler stating that all dairy products had gone up in price due to feed stock being used for ethanol production, higher transportation costs and something else I can't remember just now. This sign stated that costs would be rising....as in this isn't as high as it's going to get, prepare for it to continue to go up. I haven't been able to justify a dairy animal with there just being 2 of us.....up till now. I can by golly justify it now. We drink a gallon a day....over 30 days. That's $150 per month just on milk! Not to mention butter and cheese. Think I'll mosey over to the goat forum for a while.
