That January average is down $1.32 from the December 2012 average, and up $0.88 from the January 2012 average. The component tests of producer milk in January 2013 were:
• butterfat, 3.86%
• protein, 3.17%
• other solids, 5.75%

On an individual reporting area basis, mailbox prices decreased in all Federal milk order reporting areas when compared to the previous month. Mailbox prices in January 2013 ranged from $23.22 in Florida to $18.16 in New Mexico.

In California, which is not part of a Federal order, milk mailbox prices averaged $17.73 per cwt. in January 2013.
