Consumers see declining dairy prices; farmers endure
The consumer is starting to see what farmers have experienced for awhile now: declining dairy prices.
A price check of commonly bought food items in Wisconsin shows milk down 11 percent from the first quarter of the year.
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau conducts the Market Basket survey by pricing 20 food products in 26 different communities.
Bureau spokesman Casey Langan says farmers have endured low milk prices since the beginning of the year.
