Dairy farmers see price increase

High Demand, High Prices

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - There's a big boom in business for Wisconsin's dairy farmers.

They're getting near-record prices for their milk.  Dairy farmers are able to sell their milk for 23-dollars per 100 pounds.

That's about a dollar above the record set in November 2012and it's not done going up.

"You're going to see maybe a dollar, dollar and a half for February price go up from there too, the way it looks right now for the future, February is going to be the high month and maybe it'll come and tally off a little bit," said Loren Oldenburg, Board President of Westby Creamery.

Officials say milk prices in grocery stores should remain fairly steady.
