"Micro-dairy farming is 10 animals or less on a dairy farm. The concept is to keep your operation at a scale where you can sell all your milk directly to consumers and maintain control of your milk and its price." [02:00]
"The current [dairy] delivery system is largely obsolete, especially in these days when energy costs are so high. It deserves a re-think - we can make some improvements." [05:00]
"US Dairy farmers are extremely intelligent and efficient - they can produce a lot of milk for not much money and as a result the milk supply in this country is in a constant state of over supply." [28:00]
