    Low Milk Prices: How Long Will This Last?

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.  Sadly, milking cows in 2018 was like a flashback to 2016.  The average Class III price plus the Federal Order 33 Producer Price Differential (the Statistical Uniform Price or SUP) for 2018 was $15.21/cwt…a whopping 18¢ higher than 2016.  2017 provided a small measure of relief with the SUP averaging $16.57/cwt.

    How much are you paying for the privilege of milking cows?
