Coca-Cola got a lot of attention in November when it announced it was going into the milk business. In fact, its extra-nutritious milk product was invented by some dairy farmers in Indiana.

House and Senate negotiators are meeting to reconcile their two different versions of a new farm bill. If they don’t reach agreement, the nation faces going over “the dairy cliff” – a reversion to 1949 farm policy that would cause a big spike in milk prices.
