  1. the prices of Sweet Whey Powder for human consumption with the prices of Sweet Whey Powder for animal feed;
  2. the prices of Sweet Whey Powder for human consumption with the prices of German Butter;
  3. the prices of Whey and Skimmed Milk Powder for animal feed in Germany with the prices of Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) and edible Lactose in the US.;
  4. the prices of Sweet Whey Powder for human consumption and for animal feed with the prices of Skimmed Milk Powder for human consumption and for animal feed.

N.B.:
We note that, in Germany, there is an almost-parallel trend between the sweet whey powder prices and the SMP prices, with the two maintaining a steady gap.

We also find that whey powder prices are sitting at the lower end, confirming the belief that this powder might increasingly be used as a cheaper substitute for SMP, particularly in developing countries (DCs).

Note:
The "Notierung" is regarded as determination of a fix point of the market in the Special week when it is being quoted. It is laid down in the statutes of the whey powder price commission. The Preisspanne is the range in which most of the transactions in the market are going on in the view of the commission. Mostly, the Notierung is the average of the upper and lower value of the Preisspanne. [Source: Erhard Richarts]
