As an outsider knowing nothing about US milk business it looks like grains are supported much better throuigh safety net programs
This is true for almost all agricultural commodities, not just milk.
It all depends on what commodity has the most powerful lobby in Washington.
Beyond just year-to-year support, who got the “market facilitation” check last year? Was it the vegetable, fruit, forage, or tobacco growers that were/are heavily impacted by the ongoing trade situations? Nope. It was the soybean growers.
