Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) has accepted 15 requests for export assistance from Dairy Farmers of America, Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Association, Michigan Milk Producers Association, Northwest Dairy Association (Darigold), O-AT-KA/Upstate-Niagara, and Tillamook County Creamery Association to sell 198,416 pounds (90 metric tons) of Cheddar cheese, 4.184 million pounds (1,898 metric tons) of 82% butter and 936,965 pounds (425 metric tons) of whole milk powder to customers in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and North Africa. The product will be delivered April through September 2014.

Year-to-date, CWT has assisted member cooperatives in selling 46.330 million pounds of cheese, 38.348 million pounds of butter and 5.141 million pounds of whole milk powder to 33 countries on six continents. These sales are the equivalent of 1.321 billion pounds of milk on a milkfat basis, well ahead of the year-to-date increase in U.S. milk production through March of 565 million pounds.
