 CWT Will Expand to Anhydrous Milk Fat  

By Bob Meyer

Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) has accepted 11 requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America, Darigold, Foremost Farms, and Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative to sell a total of 2.615 million pounds of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese and 752,000 pounds of butter to customers in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America. The product will be delivered May through July 2012.

So far this year CWT has assisted member cooperatives in making export sales of Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Gouda cheese totaling 46.0 million pounds, and butter totaling 39.2 million pounds, to 26 countries on four continents.

CWT also announced that, beginning the week of May 7th, it will begin accepting requests for export assistance for Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF). This decision was the result of a thorough economic review of world market fundamentals and the potential return on investment for dairy producers.
