High Beef Prices and Low Milk Prices Entice Dairy Farmers to Ramp Up Culling

Lower milk prices and higher beef prices are enticing many farmers to cull more dairy cows. But is it making a dent?

Sarina Sharp, an analyst with the Daily Dairy Report, says the markets are all but shouting at dairy producers to reign in milk production. High beef prices are continuing to amplify that message.

Phil Plourd, president of Ever.Ag, says right now prices have gotten low enough to discourage supply growth, but appears milk supply must be reduced even more. He says more cows must continue to exit the herd to get milk production back in alignment to help improve prices.
