Dairy markets: A resilient market

Despite Class III and Cheese under pressure, a strong dollar and lack of exports, healthy seasonal milk supplies and school closings, this market has proven resilient time and time again.


Dairy markets: Pressures mounting

Class III and Cheese futures can be summed up with one word – pressure. The latest GDT auction came in 2.2% lower overall, with a sharp 7.1% downdraft for the price of cheddar.

Dairy markets: Milk Production report due today

USDA’s monthly Milk Production report will be released today at 3 p.m. (Eastern). We are looking for a 0.6% increase year over year. If the other producing states can continue to absorb California’s production losses, we should see prices again press lower; the world market offers no bullish news.
