Fluid Milk and Cream - Western U.S

California milk volumes are reasonably balanced with current demand. Processing plants are busy with milk clearing schedules and are not taking any additional loads from outside the region. Milk production is mostly flat, but component levels are stronger. Class I sales are unchanged from a week ago. In Arizona, milk balancing is going well with most processing
facilities running at full capacities or close to it. Milk output is growing seasonally, while remaining at levels that are manageable within the state. Weather is contributing to increased milk yield per cow. Class I requests are even. New Mexico Class III milk intakes grew due to increased cheese manufacturing. However, Class I inquiries declined while Class II demand stayed at the same levels as last week.
