USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will publish the milk production data in a new modern format in parallel with existing formats on Dec. 19, 2022, at 3:00 p.m. ET. The current release products on the Today’s Report section of the NASS website remain the primary source for NASS data releases.

Publishing the milk production data in the new format is part of NASS’s ongoing modernization efforts and the first data series to utilize this process. Initially, milk production data will be made available with additional milk-related information to be included later. As NASS continues to evolve and optimize its data products and services, new content and functionality will be added. Economic and field crop information is expected to be made available in the new format in 2023.

To provide data users with a preview of this new format, the website has been populated with November milk production data and can be found at
