GB & UK Daily Milk Deliveries

Published 16 February 18

Historically we have weighted the daily delivery numbers each month using the official Defra statistics. However, given recent changes, AHDB is now using a level of judgement when undertaking this weighting to avoid significant month-on-month variations that cannot be explained. As a result, the totals for some months will no longer match the official Defra statistics for that month. 

GB milk deliveries decreased for the week ending 10th February 2018, down 0.5% on the week. Deliveries are now running 0.2% below the same week last year equivalent to approximately 0.1m litres a day.

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. Figures are collected on a weekly basis from dairies and may include some estimates which are subject to retrospective changes

Week-on-week changes are adjusted to negate the impact of every other day collection, which can lead to day-to-day swings in the volume of milk collected.
