Jacobs, Herbert Austin, 1903- "The Wisconsin milk strikes"

The Wisconsin Milk Strike: The Wisconsin milk strikes of 1933 resulted from the conflict between dairy farmers who contributed to cooperatives and those who supplied dairy to city markets. Facing extremely low milk prices, some dairy farmers dumped their personal dairy yields at roadsides and stopped cars to identify and dump the dairy shipments of other farmers. The general violence of the strike and its eventual end are also discussed. (6 pages)
