July 5, 2010 07:00 PM
U.S. dairy exports through the first four months of 2010 rebounded nicely from a dismal performance in 2009, according to the U.S. Dairy Export Council.
Every category of products reported gains: skim milk powder, +19%; whole milk powder, +159%; whey products, +31%; cheese, +43%; butterfat, 97%, and lactose, 17%.
In addition, U.S. market share of all of these export categories climbed as well. For example, the U.S. claimed 38% of the whey products export market in 2009. In 2010, that share climbed to a full 50%. Even cheese market share climbed, from 9% last year to 11.6% in 2010.
