However as of Tuesday the Team¬ sters Union was not honoring their picket ine. Soime processors have signed contracts in Wisconsin, Minnes¬ ota, Missouri, and Nebraska. More are ctil'mg to discuss it. Some Union trucks refiise to operate in sympathy with the farmers. Labor Unions have come out in favor of the farmer in Wisconsin. Many farmers have sacrificed their milk money now for two weeks, not for their own benefit, but for all other dairy farmer.s. Many made as much as 3,000 lbs per day at $4.80 cwt. This amounts to $14,004 per day or about $2,016. These cows still had to be fed and milked and taken care of. Much of this $2,016 is expense, which still has to be paid. Many of these will keep on hold¬ ing until this is won. It seems many other's could join and helpf' in this. There have been some members who have run out of hay, and other's who have enough have helped out. We're all in this together. If we all stick together we can win. We are entitled to a fair share as well as the rest of the economy. McHenry County N.F.O.
