Dave’s Weekly Market Update — March 1, 2024

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.


The egg market is crashing with large drops every day. Not a good time to be holding inventory. Easter demand is approaching and might help stabilize the market later next week. Just a guess but we may end up around a $2.00 market by mid next week before it firms up for Easter demand.

Butter had some weakness after reports of cold storage supplies being higher than expected. The future market is still showing strength as shown below.

Both Block and Barrels rose this week and dropped slightly today. I do not think the fundamentals are there to keep the market at these levels but time shall tell.
