Yes. Market conditions are such that this could become a reality.

Better wording for this question. If milk praises rise to $8/gal, will you stop buying milk, completely?

I hope you think of everything I've said to you here every time you rape a cow with your arm, every time you hear her screams as you steal her babies, every time you load up the cows whose bodies you've devastated to send them to be murdered. You're sick and I'm unapologetic for telling you so.

Just trying to put torturers rapists and murderers for profit like you out of business. Dairy farmers are sick psychopaths. How can you earn a living stealing babies from their mothers to be murdered? It's telling that you'd call me the whack job for pleading to do no harm. You harm innocents daily.

Yeah I think I pay close to $4 for a half gallon of organic milk so aren't we sort of there already??

I would pay $8.00 for a gallon of RAW milk.

You couldn't pay me to drink that garbage. I don't contribute to the enslavement of females for their reproductive abilities, their rape to impregnate them, the kidnapping and murder of their infants, and finally their own murder when their bodies are used up. Cows milk is for COWS; disgusting.

If I had children, yes I would still buy it.

I would like to hear from folks in Alaska and Hawaii. Both states are already at that price for milk.

What the heck is wrong with MS? If 49 states vote yes, we are the only state that's the opp. color. If 49 vote no, we vote yes. ???

If everything else stayed the same, such as wages, no. I think I'll continue to breastfeed my baby for many years and pump for the rest of the kids at that price.

Ask people 20 years ago if they'd pay $4 bucks for a gallon of gas!

I'm surprised that most are saying no. I feel like the reality is that if milk prices went up to $8 a gallon, the average American household is going to still buy it.
I feel a good example of this would be the constantly grow cable bills.
Nature of the beast is that prices will always go up.

I don't smoke, or drink or do drugs. But $8 a gallon, is ridiculous.

Milk is already antibiotic free. It's illegal to sell milk with antibiotics and the farmer has to pay for the whole truck if they contaminate it.

Why should I pay taxes to lower your milk cost?
Milk should sell at market price.
Sorry farmers.

I would, but only one a month. Milk would become a "treat". Think of all the other foods that include milk, like cheese, that will also triple in cost!

Hey you two get a room. Cowboy, I usually agree with you but try to remember you catch more flies with honey. Susan, I like cows, too, and I don't eat 'em and I'm a Conservative.

I'm lactose intolerant plus I never liked the taste of milk; or as I call it 'liquid chalk' or 'white-out'.

So what happens on the 1st that makes it any different that today, the 31st? One day is going to make milk more than double in price overnight?

Why are so many people hating on Tony? The polls aren't rigged. Tony responds to what updates people want and includes user questions. Plus, the app's free. Tony's a great dev. Thank you Tony!!!

Nice catch! Maybe they're 16.5% and 83.5% and they both rounded up.

It would be cheaper to have a cow than to buy its milk.

There is more calcium in broccoli and kale than milk.

tallOak one of the main reasons SoH differs from national polls is, unlike a telephone poll, you have to be able to read to use it. You also have to have a suitable device, find and install the app, etc. Finally, most national polls rely on people with landlines; many here don't have one.

My point is we don't need milk. It's nutritional value is available in many other foods. My second point is once a baby is off breast milk, cows milk is not necessary for good nutrition. Formula is available for moms who can't or won't breast feed.

goooodso how did you conduct your "experiment". You can change your vote as often as you like, you know. Many do just to see if they can change the map. Still counts as their vote.

Drink water or get a cow. Milk is not actually that good for you anyway. Yes it is yummy but very little nutrient.

If Matthew Scully thinks that milk is "stolen" from cows then he's an idiot too.
