Kewaunee County dairy farmers are bucking the trend of farm closures. Wisconsin has already seen nearly 500 dairy farms close down this year due to factors including lower milk prices and higher production costs. Kewaunee County U-W Extension Agriculture Agent Aerica Bjurstrom says she’s not seeing clients on the brink of closure because they tend to be a bit more prudent.



Bjurstrom says the new Canada-U.S.-Mexico Trade Agreement will benefit local dairy farms, though the results will likely come later in 2019
