    In Dairy Production- Dean foods controls 30% of the Milk market... what that means as Dean foods buys new milk processor, they close it down to consolidate. that makes the milk from farm to processor increase in distance and cost... costs triple and Dairy farms close! fewer farmers can compete small farms close dairy farms get bigger and bigger... processes get worse and worse.
