CWT assists with 1.1 million lbs. of cheese and AMF export sales


Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) accepted five requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America and Darigold to sell 1.056 million lbs. of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, and 4,409 lbs. of anhydrous milk fat (AMF), to customers in Asia and Central America. The product will be delivered October 2012 through April 2013.

So far in 2012, CWT has assisted member cooperatives in making export sales totaling 96.9 million lbs. of cheese, 58.3 million lbs. of butter and 127,868 lbs. of AMF to 34 countries on four continents. On a butterfat basis, the milk equivalent of these exports is 2.169 billion lbs., or the same as the annual milk production of 103,200 cows.
