Better outlook for dairy farms in 2013, says UW

MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) - Agriculture experts say milk prices are expected to go up, which feed prices go down. That means Wisconsin dairy farmers are in for a pretty strong 2013.

How the year goes for crop farmers depends on whether their fields get enough rainfall to counter the problems caused by drought. Wisconsin dairies produced a record 27-point-2 billion pounds of milk last year. That four percent increase didn’t necessarily mean a major increase in profits because it was offset by lower milk prices and higher costs for feed.

The annual Wisconsin Agricultural Economic Outlook Forum was held in Madison yesterday.
