The Dairy Data Set includes data files covering domestic supply and demand and trade of various dairy products. Data on the U.S. dairy situation and commercial disappearance are updated monthly, and U.S. milk production and related data are updated quarterly. All other data files are updated annually. These include data on dairy per capita consumption; fluid milk sales; milk supply by State and region; milk production and factors affecting supply and utilization of milk in all dairy products; and numbers and size of milk bottling plants.
See Documentation for information on how the data were assembled, sources, and recent and upcoming changes to the data.
On May 11, ERS began using some new conversion factors for dairy stocks, trade, and commercial use. These are provided in a reference table at the bottom of this page, “Conversion factors and sources.” More details concerning these changes are available on the Documentation page.
