Farmers losing thousands as milk prices drop

Farmers in Henderson County fear the worst as milk prices fall. They say a drastic drop in the price of milk could force them out of business. There's a world-wide surplus of milk right now, because fewer people are buying cheese and powdered milk. One farmer said the biggest problem farmers face is the high cost of growing corn to feed their cows. He estimates some farmers are losing about 80 to 85 thousand dollars a month because of lower milk prices.
