The Pennsylvania Milk Marketing Board has raised the retail milk price in Pennsylvania by 4 cents per gallon in an effort to help struggling dairy farmers.

According to a report by The Daily Item, the increase would equate to 50 cents more per 100 pounds of Class I milk. The price increase is temporarily for the last two months of the year.

One farmer is doubtful that dairy farmers will see 50 cents. Leroy Troester of Mifflinburg, Pa., doesn’t expect to see more than 30 cents, if not less per hundredweight. He believes the money will get lost in the system. He also fears that if Pennsylvania pushes prices up too much, buyers will purchase milk in other nearby states, reports The Daily Item.
