Utah dairy farmers struggling to stay afloat

Milk prices are continuing to drop and Ron Gibson, a dairy farmer in Weber County tells us he has been operating at a loss for the last 6 months.

In spite of that he loves what he does. He is a 6th generation farmer and says if things continue to go badly, he might consider selling some of the land – but has no desire to sell off everything.

He wants to pass the farm on to his children and keep another generation of farming going.

He says, if you want to help farmers, shop local and try to visit the farmer’s market when you can.
