Weekly Animal Feed, Central U.S.: June 01, 2023

Despite an uptick on the low end of the range, most dry whey and animal feed grade whey prices slipped lower this week. Market tones remain bearish, but the relatively low price points do not offer a lot of wiggle room for further drops. There is clearly a lot of inventory available. A number of domestic end users say they are interested in current bids, but they are cautious about adding to their respective inventories. Milk is, according to contacts, more than plentiful for Class III processing and prices reflect this sentiment, as they reached $12 under Class III again this week.

  • Prices for Central U.S., All First Sales, FOB, Conventional and Non-Edible Dry Whey Price Range Animal Feed, $/lb: .2300 – .2500.
  • Prices for Central U.S., All First Sales, FOB, Extra Grade & Grade A, Conventional and Edible Dry Whey Price Range: Non-Hygroscopic, $/lb: .2500 – .3800; Mostly Range: Non-Hygroscopic, $/lb: .2700 – .3500.

Dairy Market Review: June 02, 2023

BUTTER: Grade AA closed at $2.4450. The weekly average for Grade AA is $2.4488 (+0.0143).

CHEESE: Barrels closed at $1.5125 and 40# blocks at $1.4300. The weekly average for barrels is $1.5038 (-0.0032) and blocks, $1.4456 (-0.1199).

CHEESE HIGHLIGHTS: Milk is available for cheesemaking throughout the country. Contacts in the Midwest report spot loads of milk moving from $12 to $4 under Class III. In the Northeast and West, cheesemakers report scheduled downtime for the recent holiday weekend. In the Midwest, cheese production is strong as some manufacturers in the region worked through the holiday weekend. Demand for cheese varies throughout the regions. Northeast stakeholders relay strong retail demand and moderate food service sales, while demand is mixed in the Midwest, and softening in the West.

BUTTER HIGHLIGHTS: Cream is available throughout the country. Some contacts in the West say plant downtime has contributed to more cream loads available on the spot market this week. In the Central region, butter contacts say warmer temperatures and increased Class II processing are expected to contribute to lighter cream availability as summer nears. Demand for butter is steady in the Central region.

FLUID MILK HIGHLIGHTS: Throughout the country milk output is steady. Contacts in the East and Midwest note that milk volumes are ample in the regions, though contacts in the Northeast note that spring flush has passed its peak. In the Midwest contacts note temperatures in the region are reaching into the 80s and 90s, and this heat has started to have a negative impact on component levels. Contacts in the Midwest report spot prices range from $12 to $4 under Class III pricing.
