Class III Milk Futures for the week beginning June 27, 2022.

Dairy

Weekly Animal Feed, Central U.S.: June 23, 2022

The dry whey price range contracted for the second week in a row. Trading activity was somewhat busy, as contacts say there is at least a near term rangebound quality to the Central region spot market. CME market prices have slipped below $.50 again this week, but regional demand is somewhat in line with availability throughout the mid/upper $.50-$.60 range. Some end users report they are meeting demand needs, and their customers' orders have steadied enough to take a break from spot market purchases, and/or they are finding higher protein blends at values when compared to sweet whey powder. Production is expected to increase as $5 spot milk discounts are being reported regularly and are expected to last at least until the July 4th holiday.

  • Prices for Central U.S., All First Sales, FOB, Conventional and Non-Edible Dry Whey Price Range Animal Feed, $/lb: .4800 - .5000.
  • Prices for Central U.S., All First Sales, FOB, Extra Grade & Grade A, Conventional and Edible Dry Whey Price Range: Non-Hygroscopic, $/lb: .5200 - .6325; Mostly Range: Non-Hygroscopic, $/lb: .5400 - .6000.

USDA Dairy Market Review, June 24, 2022

BUTTER: Grade AA closed at $2.9150. The weekly average for Grade AA is $2.9413 (-0.0147).

CHEESE: Barrels closed at $2.1475 and 40# blocks at $2.0900. The weekly average for barrels is $2.1644 (-0.0151) and blocks, $2.0975 (-0.0730).

CHEESE HIGHLIGHTS: Cheesemakers are running busy schedules across the country as Class III milk supplies remain widely available. Labor shortages and delayed deliveries of production supplies are causing some Western cheesemakers to run below capacity. Cheese inventories are available for spot purchasing. In the Midwest, interest for barrels and curds is strong, while other cheddar is seasonally quiet. Across the country, cheese inventories are available for spot purchasing. Cheese markets, reportedly, are experiencing some downward pressure.

BUTTER HIGHLIGHTS:Cream is available throughout all regions, though contacts in the Northeast and West note that availability is declining seasonally. Strong demand for cream is present in the West, but contacts report that high transportation costs and limited tanker availability are causing most loads to stay local. Butter makers in the Northeast are running lighter schedules due to higher cream multiples and softening demand. Meanwhile, contacts in all regions relay that staffing shortages are limiting their ability to run full schedules.

FLUID MILK HIGHLIGHTS: Warmer temperatures are affecting farm-level milk production output levels throughout the U.S. In the East region, milk declines are being reported in most areas as a downswing also occurs in the Central region milk. Overall, Class I bottling sales are seasonally slower. Sluggish demand is clearing milk loads, supporting the production needs of processors. Cheesemakers in the Central region are clearing spot milk at a substantial discount. Condensed skim spot availability is mixed. Supplies are tighter in the East, but handy in the West. Cream availability varies as the summer heat chips away at milkfat levels in some areas of the country.
