Milk prices for area dairy farmers continue to be a challenge. A weaker demand for cheese and lower prices for Class III Milk since December has caused a depressed market. Rich Olson from Olson Family Farms in southern Door County says dairy farmers can only play the waiting game.
As of July 3, milk prices were at $15.68 per hundredweight, according to Nasdaq.com. The price of Class III Milk did rebound to $17.25 in late May before the recent drop again in June.
