MMPA chairman reflects on 2023

The Michigan Milk Producers Association chairman says 2023 has been a roller coaster year for dairy farmers.

Doug Chapin milks 700 Holsteins with his family in northern Michigan.

“We started the year with a very strong market, a very strong price that rapidly deteriorated and the lows to the summer were very hard on farms,” he says.

He tells Brownfield tight margins and high interest rates make it difficult to invest in infrastructure improvements.
