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 supply and allocation of milk fat and skim solids; 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.
Errata: On February 12, 2020, corrections were made to the data set “Supply and allocation of milk fat and skim solids by product (annual).” The following data entry errors have been corrected: 2018 milk-fat and skim-solids content of yogurt (nonfrozen), 2018 milk-fat content of milk production, and the 2016-18 skim-solids content of milk production. Other data items that are calculated from these listed data items have also been corrected.
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).
