Cheese, butter production down in April

The USDA says cheese and butter production declined in April.

That followed a year-to-year decline in milk production and an increase in domestic cheese stocks in the monthly cold storage report.

Total cheese production was 1.156 billion pounds, down 4.5% from April 2021, with a 5.5% drop in Italian type cheeses to 489.041 million and a 1.8% decrease for American type cheese at 465.415 million.

Butter production dropped 10.3% to 181.194 million pounds.
