Dairy Data

Note: Some entries in Dairy conversion factors and sources have been changed to reflect sources readily available to the public and to improve estimates. As a result of these changes, small revisions have been made to “Commercial disappearance of milk in all products (monthly and annual).”

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.

Other data of interest for the dairy industry include Milk Cost of Production Estimates and Price Spreads from Farm to Consumer.  Older archived dairy data, preceding the data files below, is available from the Dairy Yearbook (last updated in September 2005).
