Summary

Milk Disposition and Income: Final Estimates by State, 2008-2012, U.S. 
Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Statistics Board, National 
Agricultural Statistics Service, Statistical Bulletin No. 1041.

Introduction: This bulletin presents final estimates, including revisions 
made by the Agricultural Statistics Board (ASB), for the production years 
2008 through 2012. The disposition and income from milk production for 2008-
2012 were published during calendar years 2009-2013.  Data included in this 
publication provide a historic record and a benchmark for current estimates. 
Number of milk cows, production per cow, and total production were published 
in Statistical Bulletin No. 1036.

Procedures: Revisions were made after a thorough review of the original 
survey data and all additional data now available, including the 2012 Census 
of Agriculture. Other data series considered included Federal Milk Market 
Orders, receipts of milk by plants and dealers, and any other available 
administrative information. The 2008-2012 estimates shown herein are 
considered final and will not be revised again.  Beginning in January 2011, 
State and United States level fluid grade and manufacturing grade milk price 
estimates were discontinued.

At the National level, revisions to estimates of milk production and annual 
number of milk cows were less than one percent.
