Abbotsford, like most Wisconsin communities, is paying more for butter. It jumped from 65 to 67 to 75 and 77 cents this week.
Dairies have reverted to the pre-OPA practice on basing their butter prices on the Chicago wholesale market quotation for 92 score butter, plus at nine cent mark up for packaging and delivering.
The price will fluctuate and might be up one day and down the next.
Under OPA, butter sold for around 65 cents and dairymen say that difference was paid through government subsidies to producers.
These subsidies were dropped June 30.
