some cheese plants are unable to take their
full daily loads because of repair/maintenance
issues. Consequently, milk holdovers have in-
creased. Handlers are redirecting the excess
milk supplies to other processing plants. Bottled
milk requests from educational institutions and
retail outlets are trending lower.
Class II requests have increased. Overall, milk
yield in New Mexico has moved up.
Milk production in the Pacific Northwest is
mostly following seasonal trends. Some industry
contacts suggest a recent cold snap may have
dampened milk output slightly in some areas. Al-
though it may be too early to tell if the recent cold
and precipitation will have much effect on milk
production, it is reminiscent of the winter weath-
er parts of the region experienced last year.
Some industry contacts suggest a few herds
still have not fully recovered from the miserable
cow comfort conditions.
Milk production in the mountain states of
Idaho, Colorado and Utah is steady. Although
milk output is near its seasonal low for the year,
manufacturers report no trouble whatsoever in
getting the milk needed. Processors are running
at or near full capacity in order to keep up with
upcoming holiday demand and to stay ahead of
the available milk supply.
Condensed skim supplies are plentiful in the
West. Processors are looking to contract con-
densed skim and cream for 2018. However,
due to lower current prices, customers are not
concerned with product availability or contract-
ing for next year.
According to industry contacts, cheese mak-
ers’ demand for condensed skim decreased.
This week, cream demand for butter churning
is solid in Arizona, but slightly lower in California.
A number of industry representatives suggest
that some cream is moving from Arizona to
Texas.
Mexico is also taking in some loads of cream

FLUID MILK AND CREAM REVIEW – WEST
(USDA Market News)
Nov. 9
In California, an incident at a cheese plant
caused spot milk availability to increase. As so,
spot prices are temporarily lower in some areas.
This week, milk production is mixed with reports
of increasing and decreasing outputs. Some
manufacturers have maintenance/repair work-
loads that reduced their processing activities.
Class 1 intakes are steady this week. Milk out-
put in Arizona is increasing, as the weather gets
cooler. Some processing plants are planning
their production schedules for the fall and winter.
They anticipate that production will further in-
crease and are looking for additional processing
plants to help balance their milk as needed. A
few manufacturers are doing their routine main-
tenance work to make sure that they are ready
for Christmas processing activities.
Sales into Class I are stable. In New Mexico,
Compiled by North American Potato Market News and USDA
Agricultural Market Service
for up to Christmas. Although current cream de-
mand in the West is seasonally active, supplies
outweigh demand.
Some Californian cream sellers report limited
tank availability to move their loads.
Multipliers for all Classes are 1.07 to 1.29. Ac-
cording to the DMN National Retail Report-Dairy
for the week of Nov. 3-9, the national weighted
average advertised price for one gallon of milk
is $2.79, down $0.05 from last week, but $0.63
higher from a year ago. The weighted average
regional price in the Southwest is $2.54, with a
price range of $1.89-$2.59.
The weighted average regional price in the
Northwest is $1.99, with no price range. Accord-
ing to the NASS Dairy Products report, hard ice
cream production in the West region for Septem-
ber 2017 is 13.4 million gallons, 18.3 percent
lower than a month ago, and 9.3 percent below
the previous year.

Compared to last week: Steers and heifers
sold 1.00 to 5.00 higher, with some markets
quoted up to 8.00 higher. One of the most
talked about subjects currently in auctions is
the readily available status of calves; weaned
and unweaned. Demand was moderate to good
this week for calves that were preconditioned
and weaned for an appropriate amount of time.
While demand was light for calves with no shots
or only one round of shots.
Very good demand for yearlings early in the
week after last week’s much higher fed cattle
market; however the luster has come off that
apple as analysts surmised that both the CME
cattle complex appeared to be oversold and
have now come off of their contract highs of Hal-
loween week. With the current price structure of
the CME Live Cattle contracts the best demand
is for yearlings and for those big calves that will
finish before the summer months.
Market reporters have noted less crowds in
attendance at sales due to farmers and ranch-
ers wanting to finish harvest and complete fall
tillage work before taking on some more chores
with winter fast approaching.
In Philip, S.D., on Tuesday, two loads of
steers that averaged 733 lbs with all the bells
and whistles sold at 185.00.
The YTD average steer carcass weight re-
ported through September for 2017 is at 812
lbs; 13 lbs below a year ago and 9 lbs below
the previous year average. Total cattle slaughter
is around 1.4 million more than 2016 and just
a mere 9K more than the previous three year
average.
The most dramatic jump in YTD slaughter rate
for January to September is the heifer slaughter
which has posted near 670K head more.
Choice boxed beef closed Friday at 213.85;
5.11 higher than last week. For the second week
in a row, total receipts on this report topped
400K; the last time that occurred was Jan. 11
and 18 in 2013.
Auction volume this week included 39 percent
weighing over 600 lbs and 39 percent heifers.

and sold steady to 1.00 lower in Texas and
Kansas. In Nebraska live sales were 1.00-3.00
lower and dressed sales mostly steady.
Boxed beef prices moved sharply higher on
the week, however cattle futures traded in the

Choice/Select spread is 14.44. Slaughter cattle
on a national basis for negotiated cash trades
through Thursday afternoon totaled 85,134
head. Last week’s total head count was 134,739
head.

Slaughter Cows and Bulls (Average Yielding

region as hunting season has begun and this
takes precedence over sending cows to market
cows. Numbers are lighter at area sales.

was 170.14 up .29 from last Friday.
