Perhaps it was all those exams he had to write in school, but somewhere along the way, Peter Duffy must have missed out on a basic science lesson (The Sunday Herald, Jan. 30).
He calls the eight cents per litre increase in the price of milk "bearable" because the money will go to "farmers and processors, the people who actually make the milk."
Unless farming techniques have changed recently, I believe it's the cows that "actually make the milk."
Too bad it's highly unlikely that any of that extra money will be used to improve the living conditions of dairy cows or other farm animals in Nova Scotia.
