As far as I can tell from the article,these folks are doing things with their own resources?This has nothing to do with the price of milk.It has to do with the entrepreneurial spirit of these folks?!!Newfoundland would be much better off if there were more people in the Province like these enterprising folks!As for the "price of milk" you'd have to ask your government about that,not Mr&Mrs.Peddle!It's not their fault that the federal and local governments rip you off through excessive taxation and overburdening regulations!Congratulations Mr&Mrs.Peddle you're a big plus and credit to your community!From one proud capitalist to another,KUDOS!!

Without an artificially sky-high price for their product, as dictated by the government at every citizen's great expense, these 'farmers' wouldn't have any money to invest, or a "business" to invest in. Dairy protectionism, and other areas of our food supply management "scheme" are gigantic, antiquated, political extortion schemes.

Dairy farmers in Canada live a completely charmed life already, selling milk under a government-run monopoly for much more than it's worth in a free, open market...fully twice the price of milk in the U.S. Do we need to give them awards on top of that, too? For what, exactly?

Congrats on the award. As for Davids comments. Cigs are twice as much in nfld too and you wont mention that. Cost to keep, feed, care for the animals is alot more than in the U.S. Maybe you should do some research before you knock someone acomplishments. They do alot of hard work for their income. You should try getting a job. the Agriculture industry supports alot of jobs in this province.

Paul, you compare cancer-causing cigarettes to milk? I see.....smokes are as fundamental and beneficial to people's well-being as is reasonable access to fresh milk? Really? Subsidizing and protecting a completely unsustainable and inefficient dairy farming industry at the cost of the general public, and specifically the poor, is unconscionably evil. And you are an eejot.
