DAIRY | MILK PRICE: HOW MUCH MORE CAN THE AVERAGE DAIRY FARMER TAKE?
The cost of production must be included in the pay price of milk.
After receiving a pay price of $26.92 for their milk in June 2022, many dairy farmers thought that possibly the prices had really turned the corner. However, thousands of these same farmers also had a large sum of money taken from their milk checks by their dairies.
Before the dairy farmers received their milk checks, many of them had at least $3 per cwt. (hundred pounds of milk) taken from them. Others claim they had at least $4 per cwt. removed from their checks.
