Milk prices may spike, likely not until spring

Posted:

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- Your milk prices might be going up in 2014, but it won't happen right away.

The end of the farm bill has sparked fears that the price of a gallon of milk will spike to seven dollars.

But the Secretary of Agriculture said it will not take effect immediately. It might not happen at all, if congress can work out a new measure to avoid a dairy price hike.

Even if that fix falls through, experts predict milk prices won't go up until March or April.
