Dairy prices set to rise with rising commodity prices

Posted by Daniel Palmer on 16th April 2008

In the past week there have been a number of stories written about the escalating prices of foods like rice and wheat but little has been discussed about dairy prices. Unfortunately, with the escalating costs of grain and petrol, dairy prices are going to rise as well. This is due to the need for grain to feed the cows and petrol for tractors and trucks which transport produce. As a result there are increased costs for farmers which will in turn be passed on to consumers.
