Wisconsin farmers saw some improvement in their June milk check – and are hoping for more as the summer rolls on.
The Wisconsin all milk price for June 2020 was $19.50 per hundredweight (cwt), or about $1.68 per gallon at the farm gate, according to the latest USDA, National Agricultural Statistics Service – Agricultural Prices report.
That price was $5.90 higher than last month’s price and $1.60 higher than last June’s price.
The U.S. all milk price for June was $18.10 per cwt, $1.40 lower than Wisconsin’s price but $4.50 higher than last month’s U.S. price.
All but two of the 24 major milk producing states had a higher price when compared with May. Georgia and Florida had lower prices.
South Dakota had the largest increase and highest price, up $7.90 to $22.70 per cwt.
