USDA price indices for June firm


U.S. farmers made and paid fractionally more in June than they did in May.

The USDA says the index of prices received was up 0.4% with gains in cattle, hog, market egg, and orange prices barely ending out losses for milk, cotton, broilers, and lettuce.

The dairy index for June 2023 was down 7.2% from May and 33% from June 2022, with an all milk price of $17.90 per hundredweight, a drop of $1.40 on the month and $8.80 on the year.
