Milk quota gone, price in the cellar

Milk quota gone, price in the cellar

"We work with live animals, we can't go on strike and send them to another factory like workers", says jorg porisch as one of his 80 cows walks to the milking robot. This is where the precious milk that is part of healthy fruit is obtained. That's what the advertising says. But it is also false advertising that is pushing the price of milk down, to the detriment of the few dairy farmers, especially since the milk quota fell to 31. Marz.

The price has already plummeted from 40 cents to the current 29 cents per liter. "The price has never dropped so dramatically", remembers the farmer from egloffsteinerhull. He does not want to complain. In his profession there are no certainties, you always have to reckon with fluctuations in price. He doesn't know what he will receive in his account four weeks later for the milk he delivers this month. But he believes that consumers are being told that too much milk is being produced since the milk quota was dropped. And the more goods are available, the less they are worth.

Rather the opposite is the case. "In reality, the average production was two percent lower", says the farmer. To print the price down, he recognizes as the goal of this misrepresentation, set by the five supermarket chains that dominate 85 percent of the food market. He is not alone in this opinion.

Ex-bayern player celebrates the triple in kulmbach

ex-bayern player celebrates the triple in kulmbach

A delegation of the FC bayern-fanclub plassenburg-kulmbach celebrated the triple of the bavarian team on wednesday evening in the guesthouse "hagleite". Innkeeper gunter limmer had invited a special guest to the meeting: karl-heinz wohland had celebrated his transfer from ats kulmbach to fc bayern munich in 1977 with the bavarian ruffians of the time.

"The sovereign victory of the german championship by the bavarian team has once again made me leaf through my guest book", said gunter limmer. He looked at the double page of 14. July 1977. "On that day, the draw between ats kulmbach and FC bayern munchen for karl-heinz wohland took place in kulmbach. Afterwards, the players from both teams came to my restaurant together with the then bayern coach dettmar cramer. Hundreds of people were sitting on the ranga next to the economy to see how the two teams arrived", the hagleiten innkeeper recalled.
While looking at the page he spontaneously decided: "if bayern wins the champions league, i will invite the fanclub and karl-heinz wohland to my place for a victory party!"

A heap of money
A lot of memories were refreshed in the process. "In the late fall of 1976, the player manager of the bavarian team, robert schwan, called me", karl-heinz wohland chatted out of the closet. Due to his excellent performance at ATS kulmbach, other national league clubs had already contacted him at that time. "In january or february 1977, i was in munich to sign the contract. Back then, they offered money that i didn't even know existed all at once", he thought back to the time.

tax revenues again in the plus

After months of strong growth, a higher revenue record than previously expected is on the horizon for the year as a whole.

The treasury is benefiting from wage increases and continued good employment, as well as from the good economy and higher corporate profits. Stronger private consumption also has an impact. However, the finance ministry warns of a significant economic slowdown at the end of this year as a result of the euro crisis.

Between january and september, revenue excluding pure municipal taxes rose by 5.6 percent – to a current total of 403.4 billion euros. Over the year as a whole, tax estimators had last expected an increase of 4.0 percent. The nine-month plus is thus high. The next forecast will be issued at the end of october.

At funerals in kulmbach it hit: finger away from the wedding suit

In the christian tradition and in the popular belief there are many rituals and needs in connection with the death. Particularly in rural areas, the people hired a so-called announcer of the dead or corpse, who announced the death to the people, but also to the cattle or the plants, and invited them to be laid out and buried. They were preferably poor widows or old men, who went from door to door for a small payment or food.

Gelaut should drive away damons

The death sound should drive away also bad damons. Although it was not specified by the church, traditionally the deceased was buried both for hygienic reasons and out of respect for the death of the "dead woman" let.

According to the local historian elise gleichmann from kulmbach, the term "heimimburgen" refers to the preparation of the body, i.E. Washing, shaving and cutting hair and fingernails.
