     Dry Whey - Eastern U.S.

     Report 6 - Released on February 07, 2019

     Some Eastern dry whey prices decreased alongside decreasing price trends observed in other
     regions of the U.S. The Eastern dry whey market seems to be weakening. The African Swine
     outbreak and tariffs imposed by other countries on U.S. dry whey could be a few of the
     factors affecting the market. Currently, domestic sales are steady to decreasing. Some
     industry players state that they are not buying as many loads as in previous weeks, since
     they are closely observing the price tendency. Dry whey production is ongoing because of
     stronger cheese output. Supplies of dry whey are also becoming more available in the market.


     The January 2019 Dairy Market News monthly average for Northeast dry whey was $0.4924
     compared to $0.2856 one year ago.
