|Missouri Dairy Business Update|

Gregory Encina Billikopf at the University of California Extension does a lot of very practical work on dairy labor issues. You can find his Agricultural Labor website on the Labor page on the Missouri Dairymen's Resource Guide.
He is conducting a nationwide survey of dairy labor rates for the April 2003 pay period. I would highly encourage Missouri dairymen to click on the website to fill in the quick survey.
Dairy Wage Survey USA 2003
Choose one milker at your dairy operation and answer questions 1- 7 thinking of this milker. Also, as far as it is possible, answer questions with data for April 2003. Report GROSS wages before any deductions.
