  3. 3.
  4. 4. Export Market Participation Important to U.S. Dairy Farmers<br />The U.S. domestic market is a large, but mature market for dairy product sales<br />The export market is growing at a rate at least eight times faster than overall growth in domestic sales<br />

  7. 7. Export Markets Impact on Income<br />The large drop in U.S. dairy exports in 2009 was the direct cause of the worst financial crisis the U.S. dairy industry has suffered in decades, if not ever<br />But, it was not caused by a drop in world demand<br />In fact, total world dairy imports by all other countries in 2009 were well above 2008 imports on a volume basis<br />
  8. 8. 2009 World Market Growth<br />2009 dairy import volumes grew in all major product categories:<br />Butter: up 7%<br />Cheese: up 2%<br />Skim milk powder: up 9%<br />Whey and lactose: up 18%<br />Whole milk powder: up 9%<br />All products, milk equiv.: up 7%<br />

  19. 19. Effect of Exports on Milk Prices<br />During August 2009 – July 2010:<br /> New Zealand (Fonterra) payout: $14.40/cwt.<br /> U.S. Class I mover: $13.80/cwt.<br />
  20. 20. Maintaining U.S. Exports is Critical<br />Due to a combination of:<br />current U.S. dairy policies<br />domestically-focused product standards<br />generally low priority of export marketing<br />U.S. dairy products are commonly “last in – first out” of world export markets.<br />
  21. 21. Maintaining U.S. Exports is Critical<br />“Last In” = U.S. dairy farmers gain the least when world prices are strong<br />“First Out” = U.S. dairy farmers lose the most when world prices drop<br />
