New Dairy in Idaho

I knew the dairy industry in California had exploded since my days on the farm, but I wasn't aware the same change had come to Idaho. (Not sure whether it's the Dutch moving there, or those fleeing CA, or potato producers deciding to do some real farming for a change.)

This sentence has a nice euphemism for "made into hamburger":
"Since the buyouts began five years ago, the National Milk Producers Federation has shifted 275,269 dairy cows, including 75,000 in the last 12 months, into the beef industry."
