Senators call for more support to dairy farmers

WASHINGTON (AP)--Flanked by a cow named Maggie--and six of his Senate colleagues--Sen. Bernie Sanders is calling for the House to pass an amendment increasing price supports to dairy farmers.

The Vermont independent made his pitch in a park adjacent to the Capitol, posing with his colleagues and the cow. He spoke in favor of an amendment to provide $350 million in support to dairy farmers.

Sanders and Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, Charles Schumer, D-NY, Patrick Leahy, D-VT, Bob Casey, D-PA, Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH, and Tom Udall, D-NM, stood with members of the National Farmers Union. The senators said dairy farmers are suffering through one of the worst periods in recent history.
