A Wisconsin cheesemaker has told members of Congress the milk pricing system needs to be changed. Bob Wills is the founder of Clock Shadow Creamery in Milwaukee. He testified before Congress Wednesday on Capitol Hill. Wills says he fears for the future of Wisconsin’s dairy industry, and he says he told the members of Congress that federal milk pricing guidelines need to be changed. Wills says it could help save family farms while lowering prices for customers. Wisconsin has lost more than 11 hundred dairy farms in the last two years. Wills told lawmakers we have an unfair system that benefits large companies, foreign competitors, and non-dairy products like soy milk – at the expense of family farmers.
