  • Dairy Price Finder App Expands Functionality

    By Margaret Speich January 5, 2016

    The USDEC Dairy Commodity Price Finder App now offers mobile users a conversion calculator.

    The U.S. Dairy Export Council constantly looks for ways to empower our members and the U.S. dairy industry with information technology that helps you do your job, even when away from the office.

    One mobile tool is the updated USDEC Dairy Commodity Price Finder App.

    Besides standard English/metric measures, the conversion calculator offers dairy-specific measures such as U.S. dollars per hundredweight (cwt) and New Zealand dollars per kilogram of milk solids.

    You get pricing for cheddar cheese, butter, lactose, milk powder and whey. Set notifications to be alerted when new prices post.

    “It is an indispensable tool in an increasingly itinerant working world,” Ingram said.
