All commodity prices staying low for area farmers

By Paul Schmitt    

Milk prices are not the only commodity causing local farmers angst this year.  According to Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm in southern Door County, farmers usually have at least one or two commodities that they can count on being above average.


Olson says other farmers he has talked to are getting discouraged about the trend.  According to, corn typically has trouble rallying seasonally in November, and a bearish soybean situation could hold back prices.  A slowdown in the milk production and a stronger demand is needed to see higher prices for milk in 2019, according to Olson.
