NFU: Farmers Receive $0.24 of Breakfast Dollar

You’ve probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But did you also know that a hearty breakfast of two pieces of toast, two eggs, three slices of bacon, an apple, and a glass of milk will cost a consumer, on average, $2.03 to make at home, but only $0.48 will make it back to the farmers and ranchers who grew those ingredients? The other $1.55 goes to off-farm costs, including processing, marketing, wholesaling, distribution, and retailing.
