Max Armstrong offers an update on the state of the U.S. dairy industry

Max Armstrong ponders how rising input costs may impact milk production. Max shares that the latest report looking at November production showed falling production and fewer cows, though the per-cow production level did rise. Max shares information from Fran O'Leary, Wisconsin Agriculturist, who notes rising feed prices are eating into rising revenues being reported for the dairy industry. The impact? In Wisconsin alone, 330 farms were lost in 2021.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
