1) Variations on the same period of previous year, two years ago and three years ago.

2) The TOTAL SELECTED COUNTRIES and TOTAL CHANGES (Vol.) both for Exporting and Importing Players are expressed in Thousand of tons; for this purpose, the conversion factor used is 1 litre = 1.031 Kg.

3) Average weighted variation of the milk production by the Selected Countries. The reference to Butter, Cheese and Powders exporting and importing countries in the above table indicates that the Selected Countries are either importing or exporting countries of the above mentioned dairy products.
 
Here is reported milk production in the top Exporting Countries:
EU-27, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Ukraine, Belarus, Chile and Uruguay.

According to FAO, these regions are responsible for 42% of 2022 world milk production (753 million tonnes) and, according to IHS, they account for 89% of global dairy products exports and are therefore crucial to orient the direction of prices on global markets.
