In 1997, ERS expanded Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook to include information formerly contained in Dairy Outlook. The final issue of Dairy Outlook was published December 13, 1996.This archive report contains detailed analysis and data covering the outlook for the dairy sector, including milk production by States, regions, and the Nation; dairy cow inventory; milk and dairy products prices, supplies, and utilization; and international markets and trade.
This annual dataset contains statistics on production, supply, and use of milk and other manufactured dairy products, including data on commercial, manufacturer, and government stocks and disappearance of dairy products, as well as import and export data. Also includes prices received by farmers, wholesale and retail price indexes, milk production costs, and information regarding regional shares of U.S. milk production. Tables are in .xls format and downloadable either separately or collectively as a .zip file. For many tables, the most recent year-to-date information is available from Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook: Tables on the ERS website.
