Mass Dairy Farmers Get Break

(Boston, MA) — Massachusetts dairy farmers are in line for a much-needed boost. Monday, lawmakers passed a bill that would allow farmers to tap into a fund created about 30 years ago. For years, farmers paid into the fund meant to protect them if processors ever refused to pay them for their milk. The largely unused fund has since grown to 2-million-dollars. Under the bill, a million of that will be disbursed, handing farmers checks for about 20-thousand a piece.
