The USDA’s  forecast is that a demand from overseas will boost the dairy industry sales by 7 percent this year, to a record $43.1 billion, according to Bloomberg News.

According to the USDA while exports are rising, domestic demand is shrinking, with the consumption of milk down 25 percent since 1975.


A dairy economist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Bob Cropp, reported that “Dairy products are still a relatively good buy,” but also shared that, according to Bloomberg News, “The market will sustain a higher price than it used to.”

The international sales manager for Grassland Dairy Products Inc., based in Greenwood, Wisconsin, Greg Rodriguez, said that “As the recession has eased, we’re seeing an uptick for certain categories.” Rodriguez also stated that “Demand for butter has been very strong this year.”

Changes in the dairy industry has varied across the United States over the
past several decades. Vice president of global ingredient sales for Agri-Mark Inc., Peter Gutierrez says, “Dairy farmers are making the best money they’ve made in many, many years.”
