Farmers prepping for next year with hopes of milk price increase

By Paul Schmitt    

Area farmers are making the transition from harvesting to maintenance.  With the majority of field work completed for the season and crops stored for the fall, local farmers are already thinking towards next year.  Jim Wautier of Church-Site Farms in Brussels and a member of the Ag Advisory Board says now is a good time to check over farm equipment.


Wautier says the next duties on the farm will be getting the cattle and buildings ready for the cold winter.  He says the milking operations on the dairy farm are going well but would be better if milk prices would go up.  According to Wisconsin Agriculturist, the USDA is forecasting a 1.5 percent increase in milk production for 2019.
