    dairy price up, 40 %..

    from a newsitem on the radio..
    milk and other dairy products are becoming more expensive over the next few weeks, prices have begun starting to rise on certain items,up to 40 %. that for sure can make you reach for the vodka bottle....
    sad only it is the kids and elder people who are depenging on dairy products as a big part of their food intake.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    Yep, you're right. Milk prices to farmers have gone up by about 35% since August ... local prices are now some of the highest in the world ... there's a general shortage of good milk in Russia (and the world for that matter).

    Can't the elderly just make a switch over to Vodka as their daily health drink?

    More importantly, inflation is a serious problem in Russia. Inflation bites into the Russian pensioners' annuities. Hopefully, this price increase is contained to Moscow and the rest of Russia can continue to live in relative harmony.

    2 things, the russians have finished changing over from paying for volume to paying for solids ( in milk)
    the Dairy farms who produced large quantitys of milk with low solids are closing up. the cost of changing cows and grass is to much.

    and lastly the Kioto accord ( however you spell it) green house gass tax thingy. well do you know how much meathain gas a cow produces? and that in some countries farmers are now Taxed on that ?? = global less milk

    and without being sarcastic or nasty, the better off pensioners live in Moscow..becuae the good mayor looks after them not to badly so he gets their votes. it is the poor people out in the provinces and towns who still have to pay the same high prices with pensions much lower than moscow.
    (My mother in law lives in Saratov o na pension of 2500 Rubles A MONTH and i have aquaintances in Lipetsk, that's why i know...)

    Gets on Hobby horse................
    for the first time in many years farms worldwide will actually make some money, then they can afford to reinvest and try to produce more. Sadly the world is now reaping the reward of its fatuous cheap food policy of the last 5 decades. This covers not only russia but the nonsense of the CAP and americas farm subsidy policy. Unfortunately for consumers the politicians forgot when they decided that cheap food, ethanol and biodiesel were great bedfellows that climate change and population growth were continuing ensuring a rapidly reducing amount of food raw materials available because of drought. In 8 of the last 9 years the annual harvest has failed to replenish the amount consumed and world stocks of grain are now below 50 days and falling...................agflation is here to stay, had a small amount of it been allowed before there would be less of it today..................gets back off hobby horse!!!
