Cheese carrying dairy export values
July 8, 2019 By Nicole Heslip Filed Under: Dairy, News, Trade
The U.S. Dairy Export Council says the value of dairy exports
hit a four-year high in May, up six percent.
Nearly $540 million of dairy products moved during the month
because of increasing world prices and strong cheese exports. Cheese exports were up 11 percent from 2018
and the highest in five years.
Export volumes were down 13 percent from last year, mostly
because of China. Exports there continue
to decline, down 67 percent from last year.
Large sales of cheese, fluid milk and cream, offset declines
in whey, nonfat/skim milk powder, butterfat, and lactose.
