Dairy Market News yesterday published a corrected version of fluid milk sales.

The interesting part is these in organic sales versus conventional milk. One possible explanation is the variation in unemployment rate. Currently the unemployment rate in the bottom 10% of income categories is 30%. For those over $150,000, unemployment is hardly a problem.
