USA: Payout NDM + Butter

Nonfat Dry Milk (NDM) and Butter are among the most requested U.S. dairy products on the international market for the production of widely consumed products. NDM and Butter prices are used as reference to deduce, with a mathematical calculation, the theoretical value of the milk used for their production.

The variables used for the mathematical calculation are the following:

100 lb (1 cwt) of Whole Milk with 3.7% p.p fat
and 3.4% p.p. protein
TRANSFORMATION of Whole Milk with 3.7% p.p. fat:
a. CREAM 40%: 9.25 lb
     which produces:
     BUTTER 82%: 4.51 lb
b. SKIMMED MILK: 90.75 lb
    which produces:
    SKIMMED MILK POWDER (SMP) *: 9.41 lb
    (10.37 lb of SMP are obtained from 100 lb of Skimmed Milk)
     THEREFORE 1 lb of SMP is obtained from 9.65 lb of Skimmed Milk)
