Dairy Data

The Dairy Data set 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 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.

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

Note: To better meet the needs of data users, a new version of Dairy at a Glance has been published. Information concerning the new version is available on the Documentation page. The old version will continue to be available until November 12, 2021.
