Dairy Exports Impacted by Trade Dispute with China


It is not only soybean and cotton farmers adversely affected by the trade dispute with China. For the first half of 2019, U.S. dairy exports were 14 percent lower compared to the first half of 2018. Export of milk powders, cheese, butterfat, and whey products to China were lower by 54 percent compared to 2018. China imported 46 percent less cheese during the first half of 2019 and whey shipments were reduced. In addition to trade conflicts, the U.S. dairy industry is facing competition from New Zealand forcing the U.S. Dairy Export Council to establish new markets including Taiwan, Canada and Mexico.
