The Competitive Dairy Case: An Interactive Dashboard

Market Intel / September 20, 2018

A recent USDA analysis of  Information Resources Inc. data revealed that the market share of plant-based milk analogs, i.e., imitation milk made from almonds, coconut or soy, rose from 5.7 percent in 2013 to 7.6 percent in 2015. USDA, however, has not recently updated the market share information for these plant- and nut-based beverages. To provide insight on sales trends for these products since 2015, we used IRI scanner data from 2015 to July 2018 to estimate market shares of dairy and plant- and nut-based beverages, review regional trends in plant- and nut-based beverage consumption and estimate the prices of the competing products. The American Farm Bureau Federation has created an interactive dashboard for a more thorough look into the results of this analysis.

So, what do we really know about wetlands in the U.S.? Are there more or less of them? Are private property owners or state or federal governments making investments to ensure wetlands are preserved? If efforts are underway, are they working or not? To the Prairie Pothole Region, an important stop in the migratory duck flyway, we go for answers!
