U.S. cheese, butter production up in March

U.S. dairy product production was mixed during March.

The USDA says cheese production totaled 1.197 billion pounds, up 8.%3 from February and 1.1% from March 2021. That included a 2.1% year-to-year jump in Italian type cheeses, which canceled out 1.4% decline for American type cheeses.

Butter production was 202.584 million pounds, an increase of 10.4% on the month and 1.5% on the year.

Dry milk product production was lower than last year, whey product production was mostly higher, and ice cream production was down.
