Butterfat is again the driving force in milk checks

From the Oct-Nov 2017 Diary Route Letter

Part of the current milk “surplus” is the results of a focus on milk volume and skim milk marketing, which flies in the face of all the market trends.    The price of Butterfat is now twice that of Protein as sales of whole milk are the only growing bottled category, while all cream products (butter, sour cream, ice cream, premium cheeses) are posting gains.
If you wish to increase your milk check price over time, consider focusing on the sires listed inside who are superior for raising butterfat % while maintaining protein %.
