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 supply and utilization 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.
