AUBERTINE: FARMERS PAYING MILK HAULING COSTS 'CUSTOMARY'--State Senator and Agriculture Committee Chairman Darrell Aubertine said in a roundtable discussion on ag issues in Waddington Friday the responsibility for the cost of hauling milk to market is not mandated by law, only a custom the system has perpetuated. Aubertine has legislation moving through committees that would shift the burden of cost off the farmer, under the premise the milk is no longer in the farmer's possession once it crosses the valve of a processor's tanker-truck. Farmers told Aubertine Friday it's nearly guaranteed processors will find a way to stick it to the producer another way, if it gets saddled with milk hauling costs.
