1Includes, Cheddar, Colby, Monterey and Jack. 2Includes protein standardized and blends. *YTD 2018 numbers are unrevised. In this month's USDA Dairy
Products report, USDA included some revised 2018 data but not all. CMN has elected to include the revised 2018 data in next month's chart when all of it
is available. The discrepancy is due to a delay in USDA's annual Dairy Products report because of the previous government shutdown.
