Milk and dairy

The FAO Dairy Price Index - November 2017
The FAO Dairy Price Index averaged 204.2 points in November, down 10.6 points (4.9 percent) from October, representing the second consecutive month of a sharp decline. However, the index is still 9.6 percent higher than November 2016. International price quotations for butter, cheese and whole milk powder (WMP) all fell, as rising milk output in all the major producing countries contributed to reducing concerns about the availability of supplies. Skim milk powder (SMP) prices slid to a near 18-month low, on continued uncertainty over the intervention stocks held by the European Union.
