The article presents information on the U.S. dairy industry. The U.S. dairy industry has grappled with record-high domestic prices and limited supply in 2004. A decade ago, under those conditions, suppliers would have been content to direct all their attention and products to the domestic market at the expense of their overseas customers. The U.S. global dairy marketers are today different creatures than the ones that sent mostly surplus, subsidized commodity butter and powder overseas in the early to mid-1990s. Now, almost 80% of the exports are commercial sales, with a special focus on high-value milk proteins and fractions, lactose, table and foodservice cheeses, infant formula, and ice cream. It also presents information on U.S. Dairy Export Council created by Dairy Management Inc.
