N.D. dairy business gets milked dry by low prices, other factors

In the midst of what have been good years in agriculture generally this decade, the dairy business in North Dakota has nearly nose-dived. The number of dairy cows in the state is down 60 percent in the past 10 years alone, going from about 50,000 in 2000 to only 21,000 milking cows this month, falling 4,000 in just the past year, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report Friday.
