Where to get dry milk at good price?

I am looking for source to get dry milk at good price.  I have been using King Arthur's, which worked great but since I bake regularly, I am hoping someone to point me to a source to get dry milk at good price.  The supermarket ones don't work too well for me.

Thanks

Stjamesb(ay?), I only ever get dry non-instant plain or buttermilk powder at the food co-op, I think it's the cheapest way to go if you have one in your area.

I live in an agricultural area, so I am kept abreast of this type of thing by local farmers: the price of all milk products but especially dried milk is going up.  The demand for corn for ethanol is making it more expensive for the dairy farmers to buy the corn to feed their cattle and they're passing that on (reasonably enough) to us.  I buy mine at a bulk food store (my local Costco doesn't carry it anymore) but it's still expensive.
