Milk Production Unlikely to Climb Higher

The June 2024 USDA Milk Production report highlighted a noticeable year-over-year decline of 0.7% across the 24 major States during May. This comes on the heels of a revised April production report which showed production at 18.3 billion lbs., marking a 0.4% decrease from April 2023.

When diving deeper into the data, it’s clear that the average milk production per cow in these states stood at 2,122 lbs. for May. This metric provides a glimpse into the efficiency and output of dairy farming operations across the country.

The total number of milk cows on farms in the 24 major States was recorded at 8.89 million head.
