UK & GB Daily Milk Deliveries

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

The UK figures were last scaled on 3 February 2017, using Defra production for December 2016. Scaling occurs approximately one month in arrears due to the timing of when Defra numbers are available. 

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.
