Dave’s Weekly Market Update — August 18, 2023

Each week Honor Foods Dairy Specialist David Albert provides you with Dave’s Weekly Market Update, with some valuable insights on the most current market price changes on eggs, butter, cheese, and cream products.

I will be away for the next 2 weeks so there will not be a market update until 9/7.


After 2 and a half months the egg market is waking up. We had some small increases this week but the tone of the market is “steady to full steady”. Today’s market may be a telltale, if it goes up much we will see a very aggressive market next week. Schools will be opening soon and maybe the extreme heat is beginning to take its toll.

Look at that volume, 81 loads so far this week! 


That was yesterday and today 25 additional loads moved pushing the market another 2 cents. I am not sure, but it seems like the 4th quarter will have very high butterfat costs. This will increase butter, cream, sour cream and cream cheese. 


Blocks have been slowly rising with only 3 loads changing hands so far this week. I feel this is too high. Barrels on the other hand have started dropping with an 8.5 cent drop today with only 4 loads so far this week. . I am unsure what the markets will do so we will have to wait and see!

We all thank you for your continued business and hope you have a great weekend!
