USDA - AMS: South America Dairy Market Overview (2019-02-14)

USDA U.S. Department of Agriculture - February 14, 2019


     South America Dairy Market Overview

     Report 7 - Released on February 14, 2019

     In Argentina/Uruguay, the sunny weather favored development of corn and soybean crops and
     helped to minimize muddy/flood conditions in several dairy farms. Meanwhile, showers
     intensified over central Brazil, while dryness persisted in the southern region of the
     country. In general, farm milk production in Brazil and all the Southern Cone region is
     seasonally trending down due to higher summer temperatures, which continue raising heat
     stress on dairy herds. In addition, the fat/protein milk components are constantly
     decreasing, contributing to higher cream premiums paid by buyers. In general terms, although
     milk production has decreased at the continental level, it is still adequate to comply with
     most requests from manufacturers of bottled/UHT milk, cheese, and yogurt. Nevertheless,
     cream supplies are very tight, while demands from butter churners, ice cream, and milk
     caramel processors are robust. With the reopening of most educational institutions in the
     next few weeks, bottlers' requests are steadily increasing.

     Information for the period February 4 - 15, 2019, issued biweekly
