Higher Milk Prices this Year


The Chattanooga Times Free Press is reporting local milk prices are up 34 percent from last year. I know I was floored when I saw the price of a gallon of Mayfield milk going for $6.00.

From the article:

Phillip Brooks, part owner of Brooks Dairy in Ooltewah, said [...] [prices for] diesel fuel, insurance and corn for feed are higher.


Boyd Brady, an extension dairy specialist at Auburn University, said corn prices have probably tripled as heat and drought stress farms.[...] "When corn goes up, everything seems to follow," he said.
