Today I will be hosting KDHL's AM Minnesota Program. University of Minnesota Extension Educator in Rice and Steele County Claire LaCanne will be in studio and Dairy Economist Joleen Hadrich will be on the phone. We will be talking about the Dairy Industry in Minnesota and a couple programs coming up in our are area for dairy farmers.

It seems like all farmers are having a tough time and have had for a number of years. It has been really tough being a dairy farmer. Minnesota and other upper Midwest states have lost a lot of dairy farms in the last couple years. Hopefully all these trade deals will help export more dairy products and result in higher milk prices for dairy farmers?
