 Amendments to Spot Call Butter Contract  

Effective Sunday, January 31, 2016 for trade date Monday, February 1, 2016, CME Group will amend the Spot Butter Call contract.


In addition to the USDA grading certificate, a Certificate of Analysis (COA) will also be an acceptable document for deliverable loads of butter in the spot market. By making this change, it will allow more eligible loads of butter to be transacted in the spot market.

Butter sold with a COA will continue to meet the grading standards of a USDA Grade AA certificate. The rules will continue to allow buyers to call for an inspection of the butter via a USDA grader or independent laboratory to certify that the butter is Grade AA, or that it meets the specifications on the COA.
