Caution! I've talked with some dairymen excited about the Buyout Opportunity the CWT program presents. For our region of the U.S. the program will only target a 0.5% reduction in milk production. That's half a percent folks! If all of Missouri's share of milk reduction came in the form of whole herd buyouts, we would only sell 650 head in the buyout. ( 0.5% of 130,000 cows = 650 head)
