Vermont dairy farmers are enjoying milk prices that are considerably higher than they were at this time last year.

Milk producers are receiving about $17 per hundred pounds of milk. By September the price is expected to approach $20 a hundred.

A year ago milk prices were at record lows. Experts think they’ll stay there for several months, maybe even a year.

Ralph McNall of the Saint Alban’s Co-op says the higher prices are a boon for farmers, both emotionally and for the bottom lines of their farms.
