Saw this interesting info from Dean Foods. Can someone help me understand the difference between raw and organic milk. And how/why would one be reaching all time high prices (raw), while there's an oversupply of the other (organic). And most importantly, what does it all mean to Lifeway? I remember them saying on the cc that organic prices were not going up like raw milk prices were, and that was a good thing for this why the big move in the stock yesterday?
