Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Milk Competition Saturday, Sept. 19

From the Wall Street Journal: Farmers Want Industry Probe 

Dairy farmers, stung by a price-depressing glut of milk, are pressing federal antitrust regulators to investigate competition in the industry.

A group of dairy farmers is slated to meet with antitrust enforcers Thursday in Washington, and Christine Varney, chief of the Justice Department's antitrust division, is scheduled to appear Saturday at a Vermont hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is populated with several Democrats from big dairy states such as Wisconsin, Minnesota and New York. . . .

Here's the announcement for the hearing, with the list of speakers:

Crisis on the Farm: The State of Competition and Prospects for Sustainability in the Northeast Dairy Industry
