Dianne Shoemaker of Ohio State University told 21 News, in just a year, more than a 100 dairy farms have closed in the state.
The Professor of Diary Production Economics also said Ohio farms are struggling because people aren’t drinking as much milk because of Mexico, China and Canada’s tariffs on milk products.
Garry Kibler is one of the owners of Kibler Dairy Farms in Lordstown.
«My dad told us this is probably the worst year we have had since we’ve been farming,» said Kibler.
With too much supply and not enough demand, the Lordstown family-owned business is fearing the future.
«We are right on the edge right now. We are surviving but barley,» said Kibler.
