On December 14 2018, the December WASDE report and milk supply and use table was reposted to correct the forecast exports on a fat basis for 2019 on page 33 from 11.0 billion pounds to 10.0 billion pounds. As a result, domestic commercial use was adjusted from 215.3 billion pounds to 216.3 billion pounds.
China’s National Bureau of Statistics recently published extensive revisions for the production and area of certain field crops starting in 2007/08. The November WASDE reflects these changes to wheat, rice, corn, soybeans (and meal and oil), rapeseed (and meal and oil), and peanuts (and meal and oil).
The spreadsheets show the revised data, previous data, and the differences. See the grains revisions and oilseed revisions.
Egg Supply and Use: U.S. egg import and export estimates from 1990 forward are adjusted to reflect changes in the conversion factors for shell egg equivalency, including its dry- to liquid-egg and liquid- to shell-egg components. U.S. egg stock estimates from 1994 forward are adjusted to reflect the above changes in conversion factors as well as inclusion of dry-egg inventory estimates. U.S. egg supply and use tables from second quarter, 1994, onwards are adjusted as a result of revised trade and stock estimates.
Dairy Supply and Use: U.S. dairy import, export and stock estimates from 1995 forward are adjusted to reflect changes in fat basis and skim-solids basis conversions and changes in the products used for the aggregate stocks estimates. Documentation of the changes is available at https://www.ers.usda.gov/data-products/dairy-data/documentation.
China corn feeding and stocks were revised from 2013/14 through 2015/16. Feed and residual use was lowered by a total of 28.0 million metric tons and FSI consumption was raised 4.0 million metric tons. Lower feed and residual use is the result of higher imports and consumption of alternative feedstuffs reflecting relatively high domestic corn prices. China corn ending stocks were raised nearly 23.8 million metric tons for 2015/16.
Estimates of Brazil corn feeding and stocks were revised for the years 2006/07 through 2011/12. Feed and residual use was raised by a total of 5.0 million metric tons during those years and stocks were lowered by a total of 5.0 million metric tons.
The U.S. Wheat Supply and Use Table on page 11 and the U.S. Feed Grain and Corn Supply and Use Table on page 12 were reformatted to delete “CCC Inventory, Free Stock and Outstanding Loans".
Changes to the WASDE included: On pages 20 and 21 in the World Coarse Grain Supply and Use table, Brazil was moved from “Selected Other” to “Major Exporters.” On pages 22 and 23, in the World Corn Supply and Use table, Brazil was moved from “Selected Other” to “Major Exporters.” On page 28, in the World Soybean Supply and Use table, Paraguay was listed separately under “Major Exporters,” and Uruguay was included in the “Major Exporters” total.
Changes to the WASDE included: The “CCC Net Removals” subcategories under Fat Basis Use and Skim-solid Basis Use were changed to “CCC Donations.” The category for “CCC product net removals” for butter, cheese, nonfat dry milk and whole milk powder was eliminated.
U.S. commercial exports for dairy products on a fat-basis and skim solids-basis have been added to the dairy table back to 2004 and subtracted from commercial use. Commercial use reflects domestic commercial use only. (XLS PDF)
