MADISON, WI. March 13, 2013 (REPORT 11)
NORTHEAST WHOLESALE CHEESE:

Cheese prices on the CME Group were unchanged Tuesday with barrels
closing at $1.5825 and blocks at $1.6025. Both barrels and blocks have
seen price increases in 4 of the last 6 sessions with barrels netting an
increase of $0.0425, while blocks have gained $0.0525. Milk volumes
going to cheese vats are keeping cheese makers on 6-7 day production
schedules. Cheese inventories have seen limited expansion as demand for
cheese has increased with the approach of the Easter/Passover holidays
and the upcoming NCAA basketball tournament. Export demand continues to
be fairly good.
