Fluid Milk and Cream - Western U.S. Report 47

In California, milk yield is stable. Bottled milk demand is declining because educational institutions are set to close next week for the holiday. Milk supplies are plentiful, but manufacturing plants have enough processing capacities to manage all the loads. Last minute Class II orders are being fulfilled. 
In Arizona, despite increasing milk output, production is still below last year's levels. Manufacturers are requesting more Class II milk to fill    holiday requests. Class I sales are down as schools prepare to close for Thanksgiving. The rain in some parts of the state has caused some delays with milk delivery schedules.
