Milk prices going up for farmers

The trend of milk prices is headed in the right direction for area dairy farmers.  Plagued by a depressed milk market the past few years, local farmers are cautiously optimistic that the upward swing in prices for milk will continue.  Jim Wautier of Church Site Farm in Brussels says June was encouraging for dairy farmers.

 

 

The USDA pushed their estimates of milk price forecasts higher for 2020 and 2021 earlier this month.  According to Hoard's Dairyman, The July Base Class 1 Fluid milk price was up to $16.56 bouncing back from under $12 in May.
