Net farm income was a record $123 billion in 2012, and is projected to drop to $55 billion in 2016 because of low prices for milk, corn and soybeans. US farmers are expected to produce a record 211 billion pounds of milk in 2016, and much of it will be made into 40-pound blocks of cheddar and frozen until prices rise from about $1.25 a pound; there were 1.2 billion pounds of cheese in storage in spring 2016. Americans eat an average 36 pounds of cheese a year.
Many meats are in oversupply, including beef, chicken and pork. Farmers began to expand their herds and flocks in 2014 when exports were strong, but now face lower prices because of the strong dollar and slow growth abroad.
