Appetite for U.S. dairy products still strong

The U.S. Dairy Export Council says October was the seventh straight month for increases in dairy exports.

Total values increased 24 percent from 2021 to nearly $820 million and volumes were up nine percent.

Exports of whey (+17%), cheese (+4%), and nonfat dry milk/ skim milk powder (+11%) all posted gains for the month, supported by widespread demand. 

While cheese exports have increased for 16 consecutive months, the last half of this year has been at a slower rate. The council says recovering milk production in Europe and increased domestic demand are some of the reasons for the slower growth.

Nonfat dry milk/ skim milk powder sales posted the first gains in 11 months because of improved supply, downward-trending prices, and more buying from Mexico.
