Subsequent to our letter to customers this morning regarding the potential impacts of the government shutdown, and the inability of USDA/AMS to release the Class and Component Prices, it is our understanding that the ten (10) Federal Milk Marketing Orders will release the prices on Wednesday, October 2, 2013. Therefore, the final settlement of the CME Milk (Class III & Class IV), Cheese, Butter, Whey and Nonfat Dry Milk futures and options contracts will occur on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 as scheduled.
