LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Farm Bureau says the price of a Thanksgiving dinner dipped slightly this year, thanks to a drop in dairy prices.

The bureau's annual survey finds that a family of 10, on average, will pay $40.75 for a Thanksgiving meal. That's down from $40.97 from a year ago. And while milk prices dropped by 60 cents a gallon, the cost of a turkey went up from 95 cents a pound last year to $1.04 a pound this year.

The dinner includes stuffing, fresh cranberries, carrots, celery, green peas, rolls, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. The dinner factors in the cost of onions, eggs, sugar, flour, evaporated milk and butter that are customarily used in a Thanksgiving meal.

The bureau surveyed 10 Arkansas cities.
