Hawaii dairies disagree about milk pricing

By Associated Press

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) Dairy farmers on the Big Island say one of Hawaii's largest dairy farms has requested to sell milk below the minimum price set by the state.

West Hawaii Today reports that concerns were raised at a public hearing hosted by the state Department of Agriculture held Tuesday on the Big Island.

The concern was over a request by Big Island Dairy to sell milk at a price below the minimum set by the Milk Control Act.

Cloverleaf Dairy President Ed Boteilho Jr. says if the request is granted for just Big Island Dairy it will give that company a price monopoly.

State Milk Control Program specialist Grant Tomita in the Department of Agriculture says the Big Island Dairy's request will be considered at a meeting next month in Honolulu.
