Dairy Market 'Suprisingly Strong' This Week (AUDIO)

Despite a small pop upward during the holidays, the dairy markets have been gloomy for months. This week, the market gained strength after a long period of steadily grinding lower.

Futures contracts and spot butter prices were the front runners, according to Robin Schmahl, a hedge and marketing specialist with AgDairy.

"It's actually surprisingly strong as far as futures and butter prices are concerned," Schmahl

says.

"This week, a fire got lit under the market to some extent."
