Milk prices increase for WI farmers, 2020 forecasted as a success

Wisconsin (WQOW) – After years of low milk prices, many Wisconsin dairy experts predict 2020 will be a recovery year for the industry.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said September milk production was 0.6% higher than September of last year in Wisconsin.

That increase comes after several months of decline.

Agriculture experts say the increased production comes from the incentive of higher milk prices.

Right now, milk is about $18 per 100 pounds of milk which is about $2 more than last year.

Experts predict prices to reach $19 within the next month and remain strong through 2020.
