     Buttermilk - Western U.S.

     Report 2 - Released on January 10, 2019

     During the current week, free on board (f.o.b.) spot prices for western dry buttermilk moved
     higher, shadowing current bullish NDM pricing trends. Compared to a few weeks ago, the dry
     buttermilk market is firming as buyers� demands appear to be greater than current
     manufacturers� supply. Requests for dry buttermilk from salad dressing and pancake dry mix
     manufacturers are strong, according to some industry participants. Drying schedules for
     condensed buttermilk are limited as most balancing plant managers are focusing on NDM/SMP
     production. In this way, regional dry buttermilk inventories are steady to lower.
