Western free on board (f.o.b.) spot prices for dry buttermilk 
are unchanged on the range, but slightly lower on the mostly 
series. Dry buttermilk production is active as cream volumes are 
ample while butter churning remains strong. Therefore, dry 
buttermilk spot inventories are becoming more assessable in the 
spot market. This week, sales activity has been light/moderate 
as the bulk of transactions are based on contracts. 

The February 2018 Dairy Market News monthly average for the West 
dry buttermilk mostly series is $0.7150 compared to $1.0000 a
