Posted:
La Crosse, WI - LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Despite increases in prices of meat, milk and eggs, food prices have remained relatively stable in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau said ground chuck has increased in price by six cents, milk has risen by 13 cents, and eggs have risen 21% over the past year.

The League of Women Voters in La Crosse held a lunch program at South Community Library Monday afternoon, which featured USDA Farm Service Director Brad Pfaff.Pfaff.

He discussed the 2014 farm bill with the committee, and how it could affect Wisconsin Dairy Farmers. “We have a situation in this country in which we have the safest, the highest quality, and the most nutritious food in the world that we grow in this country. I’m very proud of that and I think we all need to be proud of that,”

Pfaff said.Pfaff expects the farm bill to help stabilize grocery prices over the next five years.
