Also read this. The same thing would happen with cows.
Farmers would start culling the heard. Selling off their dairy cows.
For a short while the market would be flooded with beef.
Why should the farmer work his but off when they just take any profit
he makes for taxes. There would be a shortage of milk.
Shorted of milk happened here in western NY during the blizzard of 77.
Farmers had no way to get the raw milk to the prosing plants.
They were dumping it at a financial loss. Cows have to milked on a
regular schedule or they have problems. Some milk haulers that could
get the milk picked up and on the road were give police escorts to
clear the way for them.
