 U.S. dairy producers were forced to dump an estimated 46 million gallons of milk during the first eight months of 2016, the largest waste of milk in 16 years. Since prices reached record highs during 2014, overproduction has led to crashing milk prices.
Although milk producers have attempted to find new uses for the excess milk, such as giving more to schools and using it in animal feed, many have found it too expensive to deliver raw milk and have resorted to dumping it instead.
