Farmers stay positive on Farm Day

Listen to this story
North Country dairy farmers have been battered by this summer's low milk prices. The hundredweight price has remained well below the cost of production. In St. Lawrence County on Saturday, though, a bit of sun and big crowds pushed away the bad news for the 4th Annual Farm Day. It's a chance for the public to tour a working dairy farm, this year at the 175-cow Gendebien farm in Lisbon. It's also an opportunity to farmers to show their best face in hard times. David Sommerstein attended and sent this audio montage.
