Most of the dairy farmers caught in the middle of a trade spat between the United States and Canada have found new processors, but there is still concern for the long term. The price of milk has inched its way up after taking a nosedive in early April due to Grassland Dairy’s decision to not buy the commodity from over 70 farms in southern Wisconsin. No Kewaunee County farms were affected by the decision, but UW-Extension Agriculture Educator Aerica Bjurstom says some farmers are still worried what the influx in supply could mean to them.
Class III milk was sitting at $15.38 per hundredweight as of Tuesday morning, down almost 50 cents from a month ago.
