US Dairy Market Aided by 1.2% Increase in Milk Production in 2020.

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘US Dairy Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the growth of the US dairy market was aided by the 1.2% increase in the production of milk in 2020, as compared to 2018. The hike in the US milk production added to the 1.4% growth in the North America milk output from 2018 to 2020.

The US dairy market was driven by the increasing exports of dairy products. The U.S. dairy exports of dairy products like milk powders, butterfat, cheese, whey and lactose increased by 20% in the Q1 of 2020 as compared to 2018 to reach 1.14 million tons. The robust growth in the export of US dairy products was a result of the increasing demand for major US export products like skim milk powder, cheese, lactose, and whey. Thus, decreasing domestic sales of dairy were balanced by the demand from the overseas market. The increase in SMP stock led to an increase in its export to regions like Southeast Asia, China, and Mexico.

The renegotiated trade agreement called USMCA, which will be replacing NAFTA, between the US, Canada and Mexico will provide further impetus for the expansion of trade in the US. Under the new trade deal, US will be allowed 3.6% tariff-free access to the Canadian dairy market, leading to an increase in the export of dairy products like cheese, milk, and others.

Regionally, the California dairy market is recovering after the drought between 2011 and 2017, and heavy rains and flooding in early 2017. The milk production in California saw an increase of over 2% in 2018, as compared to 2017. The Wisconsin dairy market saw an expansion in its milk production despite the drought. 
In December 2018, Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) announced its acquisition of Agropur’s St. Paul, Minnesota facility. The acquisition will increase the cooperative’s extended shelf-life capabilities while diversifying its product portfolio. The St. Paul plant manufactures a wide array of dairy products ranging from fresh to extended shelf-life to aseptic dairy products for renowned organic milk brands and grocery store chains.
