Price Formulas - 2007  
Note: Milk prices are per 100 pounds or cwt., rounded to the nearest cent. Component prices are per pound, rounded to nearest one-hundredth cent. Cheese, dry whey, butter, and nonfat dry milk prices are weighted monthly averages of weekly NASS survey prices, rounded to the nearest one-hundredth cent.


For Advance Prices for January & February and Class and Component Prices for January, some of the price formulas are different than the rest of the year as noted below.

Class I:
Class I Price = (Class I skim milk price x 0.965) + (Class I butterfat price x 3.5).


Class I Skim Milk Price = Higher of advanced Class III or IV skim milk pricing factors + applicable Class I differential.


Class I Butterfat Price = Advanced butterfat pricing factor+ (applicable Class I differential divided by 100).


Note: Advanced pricing factors are computed using applicable price formulas listed below, except that product price averages are for two weeks.


Class II:
Class II Price = (Class II skim milk price x 0.965) + (Class II butterfat price x 3.5).


Class II Skim Milk Price = Advanced Class IV skim milk pricing factor + $0.70.


Class II Butterfat Price = Butterfat price + $0.007.


Class II Nonfat Solids Price = Class II skim milk price divided by 9.


Class III:
Class III Price = (Class III skim milk price x 0.965) + (Butterfat price x 3.5).


Class III Skim Milk Price = (Protein price x 3.1) + (Other solids price x 5.9).


Protein Price (Jan./Feb. Advance Prices & Jan. Class and Component Prices only) = ((Cheese price 0.165) x 1.383) + ((((Cheese price 0.165) x 1.572) - Butterfat price x 0.9) x 1.17).


Protein Price = ((Cheese price 0.1682) x 1.383) + ((((Cheese price 0.1682) x 1.572) - Butterfat price x 0.9) x 1.17).


Other Solids Price (Jan./Feb. Advance Prices & Jan. Class and Component Prices only) = (Dry whey price 0.159) times 1.03.


Other Solids Price = (Dry whey price 0.1956) times 1.03.


Butterfat Price (Jan./Feb. Advance Prices & Jan. Class and Component Prices only) = (Butter price 0.115) times 1.20.


Butterfat Price = (Butter price - 0.1202) times 1.20.


Class IV:
Class IV Price = (Class IV skim milk price x 0.965) + (Butterfat price x 3.5).


Class IV Skim Milk Price = Nonfat solids price times 9.


Nonfat Solids Price (Jan./Feb. Advance Prices & Jan. Class and Component Prices only) = (Nonfat dry milk price - 0.14) times 0.99.


Nonfat Solids Price = (Nonfat dry milk price - 0.157) times 0.99.


Butterfat Price = See Class III.
