Dry Whey - Central

     Dry Whey - Central U.S.

     Report 24 - Released on June 14, 2018

     Dry whey demand remains healthy. Contacts report that supplies are limited due to large
     volumes of domestically produced whey having been offloaded into the global market. Dry whey
     prices moved outward on both ends of the price range, while shifting firmer on the mostly
     series. The lower prices on the range are a result of food grade whey being packed into
     totes, which many buyers lack the capability to efficiently use. Whey production remains
     steady, but milk offers were reportedly up this week as discounted spot milk loads into
     Class III production have been the norm in recent months. Spot load interests are difficult
     to fulfill, as manufacturer inventories are limited to contractual needs and there are
     reports that even those orders are falling behind. Animal feed whey prices remained steady
     this week. The dry whey market tone is lively.
