To the editor:

I keep Section A of the Nov. 9, 2016, edition of The Country Today for your article, “Economist: ‘Guarantee higher milk price in 2017.’ ”

Bob Cropp arguably is the worst spokesman for dairy in the U.S., and has been for a long time. If Bob Cropp says do something, always do the exact opposite.

The U.S. has lived in the “age of excess” for 20 years. The country is broke, our money is worthless, and we just keep on spending money we don’t have to buy things we don’t need.

The dairy industry is one small segment of this unsustainable economy. The age of excess is about over. In dairy it may already be over. 

Please report on people that are accurate and have integrity. When Bob Cropp and others say something that’s wrong, quickly report that.
