     Cheese Highlights

     Report 11 - Released on March 15, 2019

     Milk volumes are available as flush-like patterns have been reported in the West and South-
     Central regions. Spot milk prices ranged from $.50 to $2 under Class, but more are being
     reported near the latter. Production is continuing apace on the coastal regions, while
     Midwestern cheesemakers have begun increasing work schedules this week ahead of expected
     demand upticks in April. Demand reports in the East and West denote some positive sales
     numbers this week. Long cheese inventories remain a concern among the industry. Even still,
     market tones have picked up momentum throughout the week, particularly on the process side.
