Spilt Milk

Farmers in one of Canada's largest milk-producing province are poised to dump millions of litres of milk due to coronavirus.
Dairy Farmers of Ontario has told farmers to get rid of raw milk to keep prices stable and prevent oversupply. Some 500 farms have been asked to dump 5 million litres a week.
With restaurants, hotels and schools  forced to close it means there's milk on the shelves not being sold, risking a price plummet.

Dairy Farmers of Newfoundland and Labrador, another provincial dairy association, asked farmers to dump 170,000 litres last week

Dairy Farmers of America, the largest dairy cooperative in the US, has also asked farmers to dump milk.
