Special Event Webinars

2017 Cream Symposium

The US butterfat market continues to sow confusion, to engender more questions than answers. Butterfat supply in the US continues to rise, but the extra fat isn’t necessarily making more butter. Where is all that cream and butterfat going?

With ample cream available, will multiples continue to track near the bottom-end of the average range again in 2018 or will greater export opportunities keep a stronger bid in the market?

2016 Cream Symposium

Huge stocks, high prices. The US butter market continues to sow confusion, to engender more questions than answers. How can high stocks coexist with high prices? Why is everyone still so anxious?

Unlike last year, when multiples spiked in July, cream has been readily available with only hints of tightness through mid-August. Unusual to be sure.

2015 Cream Symposium

Quite often, record-setting commodity prices one year will trigger much lower prices the next. That has not been the case for US butterfat markets. While global pricing has drifted to multi-year lows, the domestic market has thrown convention out the window. Market participants saw cream multiples spike in July, followed by CME spot butter prices topping $2.50 per pound in September. Some fundamental metrics don’t immediately or obviously square with the prevailing price landscape. For example, New Zealand butter prices are more than $1 per pound below US prices. US inventories are running 41% above year-prior levels. And, US fat exports are down 76% from 2014.

Watch our annual look at cream and butter market fundamentals.
