     Report 19 - Released on May 09, 2019

     Northeastern whey powder prices are steady on the bottom, but a bit higher on the top. On
     various market exchanges, weekly prices have risen, overall pushing current price levels up
     at this time. In general, trading activity is sluggish in the region as current prices are

     head before making additional purchases. Dry whey production is stable as Class III plants
     are clearing ample milk volumes for strong cheese processing. Whey powder supplies are
     growing in some facilities. Manufacturers report regular contracts continue to receive
     weekly loads. Some market participants are seeing additional offers on the spot market. The
     market tone is mixed, as inventories are expanding, but spot prices moved incrementally
     higher as well. The April 2019 Dairy Market News monthly average for Northeast dry whey was
     $0.3898 compared to $0.4042 one month ago.
