Price Trend

Milk/Feed Price Ratio

Pounds of 16-percent dairy feed equal in value to 1 pound of milk. For years prior to 1984, NASS uses a different method for computing the milk-feed ratio. In this table, the same method is used for all years in order to provide a consistent data series. Computations using the rounded milk prices and feed values in this table may not equal annual reported average milk-feed ratios due to rounding.

Average Price Paid for Milk

For the all-milk price, calendar year averages are reported in this table. All-milk prices are rounded to the nearest 10 cents.
