Session 2 – Applying Dairy Product Costing to Finished Products.

This session will build on the dairy pricing concepts introduced in Session 1. We will take Federal Order price announcements and show how to calculate the dairy cost of various finished products. Some of the products we will calculate are: 2% fluid milk gallon, half & half quarts, cheddar cheese, ice cream mixes, yogurt and cottage cheese. We will review the differences between pricing conventional milk and organic milk and conclude with an interesting section on dairy math. You should attend Session 1 to get the most out of this webinar. Repeated live on Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Session 3 – Advanced Milk Accounting Topics.

We will discuss the differences between purchasing milk from a cooperative and non-member independent farmers, including over order premiums. We will cover the pricing of milk in non-Federal Order areas and in California. We will teach tips and techniques for effectively completing monthly state and Federal milk utilization reports. In the second hour we will talk about how dairies can measure and reduce milk shrinkage. Our experiences in many plants can show how milk loss can be reduced in your plant. The shrinkage module will be particularly useful to plant and lab employees in addition to dairy accountants.


These are not pre-recorded webinars. During each session you will have the opportunity to ask questions, make comments and request further explanation of interesting topics.
