"They are playing with everybody across the nation because they are not able to get along. It's all a big game right now for them and they don't understand how things like that affect real people throughout the country," explained David Oakley.
Oakley said his family goes through at least five gallons of milk a week and this potential price jump has him considering cheaper options."Since we've got a little bit of acreage we are actually looking into getting a milk cow for next year so we can have our own milk so we don't have to worry about the price of milk," said Oakley.
Oakley and many others may be on the right track in buying a cow because milk remains at the top of everyone's shopping list and at the bottom of lawmakers' priority list. Congress must come to an agreement on the current Farm Bill by January 1st or the dairy subsidy will expire and that's when the prices of dairy products could skyrocket.
