Max Armstrong shares news of an ag sector that was able to pivot and expand during the pandemic

Max Armstrong reports on the ability of the dairy industry to pivot in the face of changing demand brought on by the pandemic. Even with that challenge, Max reports the industry added almost 98,000 cows in 2020. Productivity also rose at 1.4% per day basis, the fastest boost in four years. Total milk price output rose 2%. And prices rose as retail demand improved. Yet the industry ended 2020 with rising stocks of several products.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
