An amendment to keep the federal dairy program within the confines of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings deficit-reduction law was rejected by the House on a vote of 120 for and 267 against. This cleared the way for House approval of a plan that cushions milk producers against the 4.3% cut in dairy price supports that took effect March 1 under Gramm-Rudman-Hollings. That cut lowered supports from $11.60 to $11.

Something was spooking Keith and LeAnn Cook's cows to the point that some nights they couldn't be milked. "They were wild," Cook said. It took two years and a jolt to a creamery worker to determine that electricity, leaking from power lines through the steel walls and metal pipes in the barn, was giving the herd two- or three-volt charges every time Cook brought them in for milking. LeAnn Cook said the stray voltage problem drove her family out of the dairy business.
