to the milk used for human consumption or as a feedstuff. The data also
forms the basis for further calculations, for instance in conjunction
with Supply Balance Sheets or the Economic Accounts for Agriculture.
The survey of the overall raw milk yield and its use for human consumption is conducted in accordance with the criteria and definitions of the European commission decision of 18 December 1996 laying down provisions for the implementation of council directive 96/16/EC. The statistics for milk production and usage is provided annually by Statistics Austria in cooperation with the regional agricultural chambers, relevant professional associations and the "Agrarmarkt Austria" (AMA, the Austrian paying agency for agriculture and rural development).
