WEB SITE OF THE MONTH -
Economic Research Service - USDA
Dr. Allen Young
USU Extension Dairy Specialist
The web site for this issue is the Economic Research Service, a part of USDA. The Economic Research Service provides economic analysis to support the agricultural system.
The URL for the site is: http://www.ers.usda.gov/.
Once at this site, click on �key topics� on the top bar. At this point you can branch into any topic of interest. I suggest clicking on Livestock, Dairy, Poultry, Aquaculture. This leads you to another list of topics. I clicked on the �Dairy� listing under Related Briefing Rooms. This brings you to another list and if you scroll down, you will find an article on the Changing Landscape of U.S. Milk Production. The next one down is Milk Pricing in the U.S. These are just two of many different articles on the dairy industry. There is also a monthly Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook that gives current information. I hope you take a few minutes to explore this site. There are many topics of interest that are related to economic parameters of the dairy industry.
