I-29 corridor: hot spot for dairy growth

A dairy market analyst says rising costs have limited expansion across the country.

Sarina Sharp with the Daily Dairy Report tells Brownfield most milk production growth is happening in the Northern Plains.

“So that is Iowa, South Dakota, and Minnesota—there they are growing milk production and they are growing processing capacity,” she says.  “There are new dairies coming in and it’s not just cows moving across state lines, it’s truly growth.”

She says increases in the Great Lakes have been modest partly because of inflationary pressure.
