In response to congressional requests, GAO provided information on the Department of Agriculture's (USDA) dairy surplus inventory.

GAO found that: (1) as of September 23, 1983, USDA had about 3 billion pounds of dairy commodities in storage valued at $3.7 billion; (2) there has been minimal commodity spoilage and loss to the government to date, but deterioration could occur in the future if dairy inventories continue to increase; and (3) USDA leased warehouse facilities, in general, are in good condition.
