Dairy Profitability Web Pages

While attending a national meeting on risk management, I learned why Wisconsin's two web pages are so well done. There are more economists in Wisconsin working on the economic problems faced by dairy operators than there are in all of the universities of the 11 western states. Their work does, however, allow western producers to obtain the benefits of this effort. The web page for the Center for Dairy Profitability at the University of Wisconsin (www.wisc.edu/dairy-profit) focuses on dairy profitability issues. The web page entitled "Understanding Dairy Markets" (www.aae.wisc.edu/future/) focuses on dairy markets and pricing issues. It contains one of the best set of links to dairy market news information available on the web.
