U.S. Senator Charles Schumer is pushing Congress to allow New York farmers to expand their milk production. Schumer has announced an energy initiative that would give State farmers more money to help build biodigesters on their properties, to help deal with cow waste.
The thought is farmers would then be able to expand their cow herds and milk production, which would help them keep up with the growing demand for Greek yogurt in the state.
