Economist Forecasts $18 Milk This Fall

A dairy economist says milk prices could approach $18 by the fall, a more than $4 per hundredweight increase since the beginning of 2019. 
 
University of Wisconsin's Bob Cropp says dairy product production is down, stocks are tightening, and everything is indicating stronger prices for the fourth quarter.
