Milk Production Remains Steady Despite Drought, Loss of Cows

Dairymen may have lost several cows due to drought, high feed prices and heat, but milk production has remained steady, according to USDA’s latest dairy report. Released last week, the report showed milk production in the 23 major states averaged 1,791 pounds in October, just one pound above October 2011 figures. The number of milk cows on farms was 8.47 million, which is 10,000 heads less than last October. Review the report.
