CWT export assistance efforts focus on dairy products that positively impact producers’ milk checks: American-type cheeses, anhydrous milkfat, butter containing 82% butterfat, cream cheese and whole milk powder.

Product destinations

All these products are moving the components of U.S. dairy farmer milk overseas.

Product sales

CWT member cooperatives submitted 870 requests for export assistance during 2021. CWT provided assistance on 703 of these requests, resulting in contracts to sell 53.1 million pounds of American-type cheese, 15.9 million pounds of butter, 6.4 million pounds of anhydrous milkfat, 12.2 million pounds of cream cheese, and 45.1 million pounds of whole milk powder. These sales are the equivalent of 1.45 billion pounds of milk on a milkfat basis. end mark

It is a voluntary, producer-funded program developed by National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) to strengthen and stabilize producer prices. Participating producers contribute four cents per hundredweight of milk produced to fund the program. For membership information go to Cooperatives Working Together (CWT)
