Fluid milk sales down another billion pounds
For decades, fluid milk sales in the United States were over 50 billion pounds annually. Sales dropped below that level in 2015 and have continued to track lower the eight years since then.
Last year, sales of fluid milk were 43.45 billion pounds, according to the USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS). That was down 2.4% or 1.07 billion pounds from 2021.
That decline in 2022 follows a 1.85 billion pound drop-off in sales from 2020 to 2021. Sales of fluid milk have fallen nearly 12 billion pounds since reaching a high point in 2009.
