Did you know that in recent decades, per capita consumption for several major dairy product categories has risen, including cheese, butter, and yogurt? On the other hand, per capita consumption of fluid milk has declined.

The USDA, Economic Research Service’s (ERS) Dairy Data product gives additional insights into the domestic supply, demand, and trade of various dairy products. 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.

During this webinar, ERS Economists Jerry Cessna and Angel Terán presented an overview of the product, highlighted its many uses and demonstrated where to find these data on the ERS website.
