Dairy Data

This Dairy Data page includes data files covering domestic supply, demand, and international trade of various dairy products. Data on the U.S. dairy situation and commercial disappearance are updated monthly, whereas the U.S. milk production and related data are updated quarterly. All other dairy data files are updated annually. These files 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.

See the Documentation page 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, are available in the Dairy Yearbook (last updated in September 2005).

Note: On May 13, 2022, two new dairy data files were added to this page:

  • Supply and utilization for dairy product categories (monthly and annual)
  • Supply and utilization of milk in all products (monthly and annual)

The two data files listed above replaced the three data files listed below for the period from 2011 to current. The three data files listed below are available as historical dairy data, covering data periods ending in 2010:

  • Commercial disappearance for dairy product categories (1995–2010)
  • Commercial disappearance, milk in all products (1995–2010)
  • Milk: Supply and utilization of all dairy products (1970–2010)
