Looking at the first quarter of 2022 (January to March), domestic milk intake is down by 0.8%, dropping from 1.36 billion litres in 2021, to 1.35 billion litres this year.

The milk intake considers whole milk purchased by creameries and pasteurisers from domestic producers through collection depots, and separating stations including whole milk obtained from herds owned by the creameries and pasteurisers, the CSO said.

Global economic uncertainty apparently isn’t diminishing foreign demand for U.S. cheese, according to a monthly market update from the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC). Multiple factors, especially adequate cheese supplies at competitive prices, put the U.S. in a position to continue export growth in the near term and increase its presence in the international market.
