INDIANA'S HUGE FAIR OAKS DAIRING DUMPING $500,000 OF MILK PER DAY DUE TO WEATHER
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

This week's Polar Vortex is costing one Indiana agritourism destination a lot of problems.

According to the Lafayette Journal and Courier Fair Oaks Farms has dumped up to $500,000 worth of milk per day because its dairy trucks have been unable to make deliveries.

Last weekend's winter weather caused the stretch of Interstate 65 to shut down where Fair Oaks is located.

Regardless of the closure, the dairy's 35,000 cows still needed to be milked and with storage at maximum capacity, the farm has been having to dump nearly a quarter of a million gallons of milk per day.

Even though the stretch of I-65 has been reopened, Board Chairman Mike McCloskey says Fair Oaks will likely still have to dump some milk until deliveries resume.
