Milk prices rebound, dairy farmers up production

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Some good news for the nation's dairy farmers: milk prices appear to be rebounding along with higher sales and a recovering export market.

For most farmers, the price they received for milk last year was less than it cost to produce it. But the positive forecast has many farmers trying to maximize production.

One Wisconsin dairy is even expanding from 4,000 cows to 8,000 this year. Rosendale Dairy owner Jim Ostrom says selling as much milk as possible is the only way to make money at this time.
