Dairy situation and outlook

By Bob Cropp,

Professor Emeritus University of Wisconsin Cooperative Extension, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Milk production is picking up as dairy producers feed for higher production per cow and by adding milk cows. USDA’s milk production report revised June’s milk production to 2.2 percent higher than a year ago and estimated July’s production 3.9 percent higher. July milk cows numbered 0.4 percent higher than a year ago and milk per cow was 3.5 percent higher.
