With Door and Kewaunee farmers hoping to get their final crops off the field this fall, one area farmer says the silage corn needed for his livestock during the winter months is in good supply. Rich Olson of Olson Family Farm in southern Door County says nearly all the corn is harvested for the season.
Olson adds that milk prices continue to trend upward. According to the Wisconsin State Farmer, milk prices are benefiting from a strong cheese and butter market nationally. Class III milk prices are averaging about $16.75 compared to $14.65 last year.
