Help is on the way for dairy farmers in Door and Kewaunee Counties facing low milk prices. The Dairy Revenue Protection program allows farmers to establish a guaranteed revenue on a set amount of milk. Farmers can then collect money if their revenue doesn’t meet the set level. Kewaunee County U-W Extension Agent Aerica Bjurstrom calls it a good thing for local dairy farmers.
Bjurstrom expects a total of about 150 small and medium farms to benefit from the Dairy Revenue Program.
