USDA indices of prices received, paid up in June

The USDA says producers made and paid more in June than in May. The index of prices received was up 1% on the month as a 5.0% jump in the livestock index canceled out a 3.3% decline for crops. Prices moved higher for milk, broilers, oranges, and lettuce, but were lower for hogs, corn, market eggs, and cantaloupes.

The dairy index for June 2020 was up 33% from May but unchanged from June 2019.
