Well lets see, how do we get dairy farmers to make more milk? this should be a hard one, lets try PROFIT. Until dairy farmers see a potential for long term profits they are not going to have the money to invest in larger more modern facilities. Another thing holding farmers back is the amount of regulations that are in place and new ones that do not benefit the farmer but are expensive to implement. How many people do you know that would invest millions of dollars without having some assurance that the rules will not change(new regulations) and at least a reasonable expectation for a modest return on investment.
