Dairy Prices
 
 Over the years some confusion surrounding the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Dairy Products Prices (DPP) program and the use of these data in the class price formulas. Why are NASS’s DPP reports used in the Agricultural Marketing Service’s (AMS) class price formulas?  How are the NASS reports compiled?  Is there a magic formula used to generate the NASS DPP reports? What prevents manufacturing plants from misreporting or manipulating the prices?

Fly Control
 
 Flies do have an economic impact for dairy producers. House flies and Stable flies are primary pests of confined animals followed by the horn fly for producers who pasture their animals. Horn flies are serious pests but the larvae cannot tolerate the manure being disturbed hence in confined operations they are not as serious a pest.

DTN Weather Summary
Northern Areas to Get Snow Wednesday
Bryce Anderson (Bio) – DTN Meteorologist

A swath of snow is in store for the Northern Plains and northern Midwest Wednesday. The snow will continue to delay field work in these areas. Dry conditions will cover the rest of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairie crop regions. Temperatures will still be below normal in the eastern Midwest, keeping spring work progress slow. Meanwhile, the Southern Plains will be very warm, causing additional drought stress to wheat and pastures. Southeastern areas will have slow progress after recent rains. » More DTN Weather Commentary

The House Agriculture Committee reprimanded the Commission's rulemaking process last week by including language in a bill that undid a controversial rulemaking on residual interest, a concept that commercial hedgers argue would cause the cost of hedging to skyrocket.
