Dairy Day at the Capitol

CREATED Jun. 13, 2013

The weather this year is helping dairy farmers.

Last year's drought ran up the price of hay, with many farmers suffered losses to keep from raising prices.

Some worked together to make sure the hay prices didn't put small farmers out of business.

Loomis was among many at Dairy Day at The Capitol, where farmers show off their products to lawmakers.

Dairy is a big part of Michigan’s agriculture sector, ranking eighth in total production in the country.
