Dry Product Prices
Click on image to enlarge)
Today's NASS price for nonfat dry milk (NFDM) is $1.3938 per pound - pitiful. Today's CME price for NFDM is $1.8325 (Grade A). The most recent, February 15, 2011, GlobalDairy Trade internet auction price for skim milk powder which is virtually interchangeable with NFDM was $1.78 per pound. Is there an explanation which relates to "market" economics. Probably not.
The good news is that all prices are heading upwardly, even whey.
