Things have been changig here in México those weeks. Now dairies are in hard troubles. Not only milk price has fallen down, but the market is reduced now. "Crisis" is the most heard word those days. We've been asked from the plant to decrease our production in 20%, which is very hard. I understand in the USA there is a system to send out cows to cull them, here we don't have any similar; but anyway, many dairyman (specially smaller ones and with low quality) are sending out cows. There is a huge problem here: milk powder coming from out (USA and NZ mainly) at very low prices, and it pushes us down and out!. You can see, we all are on the same boat!.
On the other hand, but to make it even worst, our currency (mexican peso) is devaluating, we went from US$0.10 per MX$1.00 to US$0.07 per MX$1.00. It can be good if we assume it is going to make more expensive imported milk products (or at least "less cheap"); but we are in an industry that uses many international commodities: corn and soy are the most important, but also technology (from tractors, milking systems, parts, etc.), and more, like heifers, bull semen, medicine, and others. This makes our costs go up, while the milk price is going down, and market is reduced. At current rate, we are selling the milk at US$12 per hundred weight (aprox. to USA system, we get paid per kilogram actually).
