April 12, 2017: Dairy Week in Review

The latest USDA World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) reporter lowered dairy product price forecasts, which in turn decreased projections for the Class III, Class IV and All-milk prices for 2017. USDA expects the 2017 All-Milk price to range from $17.40 to $17.90 per cwt., falling 40 cents on the low and 50 cents on the high. The growing US dairy herd is expected to overcome any slowdown in growth per cow, with the nation’s herd at 9.367 million head in February, the highest since the early 1990s. USDA projected 2017 milk production levels up 2.3 percent from a year ago to 217.3 billion pounds. CLICK HERE FOR THIS WEEK’S REPORT
