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 11 April 2016 to use the provisional February figure of 1,151m 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 April at the beginning of June.

• UK daily deliveries for the two weeks ending 23/04/2016 averaged 41.9m litres/day, 1.5m litres/day (3.4%) lower than the same period last year. Daily deliveries for this period were 0.8m (2.0%) higher compared with the 3-year average.

• For the two weeks ending 23/04/2016, GB daily deliveries averaged 35.2m litres/day and were down 3.4% (1.2m litres/day) from the same period in the previous year. Daily deliveries for this period were 0.7m litres/day (2.0%) higher 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).
