The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that lower milk prices forecast for 2015 could turn record profits into losses.

Pat Lunemann, a 700-cow dairy farmer from Clarissa, Minn. and  president of the Minnesota Milk Producers Association, says  dairy farmers are prepared for the downturn. In good times, such as 2014, farmers paid bills and reduced debt, “because you know that these times come.”
