Germany's Dairy Farmers are protesting against low milk prices.
It says more than 50% dump their milk or feed it to the animals.

Seems to me that surplus milk production has been a persistent problem in many parts of Europe for quite some time. Sure wish I had ready access to Bären Marke 10% Fett.

Sounds like a problem Bayer or BASF could solve.

Drink milk instead of water.

Seriously. Mozzarella cheese. Farmers’ cheese. Make lots of yogurt, butter. I’d say butter in this situation is the best because it is easily stored in the freezer for a fairly long period of time. So if you have lots of it, it will not go bad in the freezer.

You can make yogurt or cheese. Ice cream is another option.
