The last time I spoke with my dairy farmer was end of June. He said that grain prices had doubled, then were expected to go up another 30% in July. His solution was to buy an enormous amount of grain to store long term. He's offered it to our group, but I don't have a mill so have not bought any. I'll see my local chapter on Friday night, but meanwhile there has been chatter about fertilizer prices (low supply), hence low hay production. So ranchers have had to reduce their herds by 60-70%. Also, I heard that orchards are cutting their trees down locally. I didn't look into that, but I will see a farmer tomorrow (going to a regenerative farm to pick up some onions). I'll report back.
