SWEET WHEY POWDER:   

	European sweet whey prices firmed at the lower end of the price 
range, but weakened at the top. Global competition is believed to 
have shaved upper range pricing. While whey stocks are generally 
ample, location and timing factors helped nudge lower range prices a 
bit higher.
