Although milk production has increased 1.5% in September, butter production fell 1.4% in September (YoY). New milk from dairy processors continues to be routed to class 3 at the expense of class 4. This is partially due to cheese exports remaining strong (+5.1% over September 2021). This also resulted in dry whey’s production increasing as well (+5.3% YoY).
Prototheca bovis is a yeast-like microalgae that has been around since the ‘50’s which has recently resurfaced in the last five years. This causes mastitis and is highly contagious from cow to cow. For now, it is unknown how things will shake out, but there have been hygiene practices and milking procedures which have been provided to help reduce infectivity rate amongst cows. We could see these practices and procedures widespread in the future if there is a large breakout.
