UK Daily Milk Deliveries
Published 26 August 16
|The challenges many dairy farmers face as a consequence of the current milk price and market volatility are of great concern. AHDB Dairy provides a range of tools and resources to help dairy farmers make informed business decisions during these challenging times #Decisions4Dairy.
Figures are collated by AHDB Dairy from many of the larger UK dairy companies and are then scaled to reflect 100% of deliveries using the latest Defra UK production figures. The UK figures were scaled on 5 August 2016 to use the provisional June figure of 1,209m litres as reported by Defra.
Please note the UK daily delivery figures are now re-weighted approximately one month in arrears due to a change in source of the data. AHDB is aware that a number of farmers have switched milk buyer at the end of March. Defra will release the figures for July at the beginning of September.
- UK daily deliveries for the two weeks ending 20/08/2016 averaged 36.8m litres/day, 2.3m litres/day (5.9%) lower than the same period last year. Daily deliveries for this period were 0.9m (2.4%) lower compared with the 3-year average.
- For the two weeks ending 20/08/2016, GB daily deliveries averaged 31.0m litres/day and were down 6.9% (2.3m litres/day) from the same period in the previous year. Daily deliveries for this period were 1.2m litres/day (3.6%) lower compared with the 3-year average.
UK daily deliveries may be slightly under-stated at certain times of the month due to minor and temporary sampling issues. For more detail, please contact Patty Clayton (02476 478701).
