It’s certainly a complicated topic, but I have to say: it’s really hard to watch a stream of milk being poured onto the ground. A large part of me agrees with commenter Dave Skolnick: “Waste is Waste.” But I also think you can’t separate this event from the unsustainable situation dairy farmers face. What’s your take?
