Description

In the Netherlands about 96 percent of all raw cow's milk from dairy farmers is delivered to dairy factories. The remaining 4 percent is kept by the dairy farmers themselves for their own use (to feed young cattle and/or manufacture dairy products). This table contains data about the volume of cow's milk delivered by dairy farmers and the products manufactured by the dairy industry in the Netherlands. The table contains monthly figures as well as yearly figures. The figures on raw cow's milk concern volume, protein content and fat content. Dairy products include butter, cheese, milk powder, concentrated milk and whey in powder or block form.

The data in this table are provided by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) gathers data for two series on dairy products, namely monthly statistics and yearly statistics. As the monthly figures are based on about 98 percent of all cow's milk delivered to dairy factories, a provisional adjustment is done by the Agency. This adjustment only concerns collected milk and these monthly figures are revised when the yearly figures become available.

The table does not contain figures about fresh products such as drinking milk for consumption or acidified milk products such as yoghurts. Figures about these products are only available for the years 1995-1997.

Data available from: January 1995

Status of the figures: The monthly figures are provisional at first publication. Definite month and year figures are published in August/December of the following year.

Changes as of 16 June 2021: The provisional figures of April 2021 have been added. The provisional figures of January 2021, February 2021 and March 2021 have been updated.

When will new figures be published? Approximately six weeks after the month under review.
