Dairy Exports Decline in July

 |  By: Jim Dickrell

For the first time in a year, U.S. dairy exports declined in July with a 1% drop in total tonnage from a year ago. July’s exports were also the lowest since January.

The good news, thanks to stronger world prices, is that the value of exports shipped in July was up 11% to $442 million.

Milk powder sale to Mexico remained strong, up 1% in July and up 27% in the first half of 2017. But powder sales to China plunged 45% in July and were down 27% to all of Southeast Asia.

Total cheese exports in July were also at their lowest since January, but still up 14% from a year ago.
