Food prices in Wisconsin have remained relatively stable, although items such as meat, milk and eggs are a little more expensive.
    
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau calculated the average cost for 16 food items through the end of March. The total was up 0.3 percent from March 2013.
    
The bureau's survey says the 16 items collectively cost $50.04. That's 13 cents more than last year, and less than the national average of $53.27.
    
The price of a dozen large, Grade A eggs in Wisconsin rose 21 percent over the past year. Milk prices rose 13 cents to $3.74, and a pound of ground chuck costs 6 cents more.
    
But those increases were offset by lower prices for items including white bread, orange juice and bagged salad.
