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 3 June 2016 to use the provisional April figure of 1,249m 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 May at the beginning of July.

  • UK daily deliveries for the two weeks ending 18/06/2016 averaged 41.0m litres/day, 2.6m litres/day (6.1%) lower than the same period last year. Daily deliveries for this period were 0.5m (1.3%) lower compared with the 3-year average.
  • For the two weeks ending 18/06/2016, GB daily deliveries averaged 34.3m litres/day and were down 6.1% (2.2m litres/day) from the same period in the previous year. Daily deliveries for this period were 0.5m litres/day (1.4%) 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).
