A central Minnesota dairy farmer is managing volatile milk prices and escalating feed costs.

Dan Glessing of Waverly tells Brownfield having crops and livestock helps balance out his operation.

“You can look at it two ways. You’ve got the cost of production of putting that corn through the animal, but then there’s also opportunity costs where we could be selling the grain if we didn’t have the animals around. But in the end we’ve found year in and year out, it just averages out.”

He suggests dairy markets are stabilizing.

The number of days a cow spends in milk affects how much milk it produces in a season, and long term shifts across the whole herd will influence national production.
