CWT assists with 7.5 million lbs. of cheese and butter export sales
Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) accepted 28 requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America, Northwest Dairy Association (Darigold), Michigan Milk Producers Association, United Dairymen of Arizona and Upstate Niagara Cooperative (O-AT-KA) to sell 5.899 million lbs. of cheddar cheese and 1.636 million lbs. of butter to customers in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Oceania. The product will be delivered April through September 2013.
So far in 2013, CWT has assisted member cooperatives in selling 47.055 million lbs. of cheese, 46.484 million lbs. of butter, 44,092 lbs. of anhydrous milk fat and 218,258 lbs. of whole milk powder to 30 countries on six continents. These sales are the equivalent of 1.449 billion lbs. of milk on a milkfat basis. That is equal to 90% of USDA’s projected increase in milk marketings for all of 2013.
