State, federal governments give farmers boost

It has the makings of being a very good end of the month for farmers in Door and Kewaunee counties thanks to government officials in Madison and Washington D.C. Last week, Governor Tony Evers laid out the groundwork for a special session addressing concerns in the agriculture industry such as increasing exports and providing incentives to diversify. On Wednesday, President Donald Trump signed off on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) that will make sure American dairy farmers maintain their access to those two markets for their cheese. Luxemburg farmer Dave Jauquet says both plans are good news for the dairy industry.


The United States Department of Agriculture recently gave dairy farmers even more good news when it updated its 2020 All-Milk price outlook to be $19.25 per hundredweight. That is close to $1 more than last year and over $3 above its 2018 level.
