Dairy markets expected to stay the course

An ag economist says dairy markets aren’t expected to change much next year. Chris Wolf with Michigan State University tells Brownfield while crop prices are expected to remain low next year, overall dairy markets aren’t too exciting either. “Contingent on what happens with feed prices and international trade, any kind of weather events which we have no way of really forecasting for the next year—but at the current time 2018 looks a lot like 2017.” He says processing capacity in Michigan is full, and higher marketing and transportation costs along with sometimes distressed sales and dumped milk has meant dairy farmers in the state are receiving even lower milk prices than others in surrounding states.

Get problems out on the table

NCBA welcomes tax reform

The president of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Craig Uden, says his group supports tax reform efforts in Congress.
