I don't drink milk but even vegan families I think would be effected and here is why ----
Stores wouldn't just raise dairy products, I think they would raise food across the board to cover the costs of milk, so that dairy products are still sellable.

There is a very good documentary on Netflix: Vegucated. It is not some sort of scare tactic thing, but it was very informative and eye opening. Three people volunteer to go on a vegan diet, who normally eat meat often. I suggest watching it. One part talks about how dairy cows have to be impregnated to obviously make milk. Impregnated over and over and over again. I didn't realize how cruel that is. And how a lot of "organic" farms keep those cows close together and are milked by machines, etc etc. Anyway, a very good documentary
I need to learn more about this.
We drink a lot of milk at my house. We get it delivered from a local dairy, where we get to visit the cows who roam in a lovely mountain valley just north of town. It is organic. The milk is delivered to our home twice/week, and is minimally processed (we get it the same day that they take it from the cows....) We pay about $3/ half glass gallon-- so $6/ gal. We go through 6 gallons/week.
Though we love almond and coconut milk, too-- so could easily switch to one of those.
