Latest News & Analysis

  • GB milk production stops falling for now

    After 11 consecutive weeks of declines, GB milk production stabilised last week with a small 0.2% increase (w/e 11 August). The recent wetter weather has started to support an improvement in grass growth as seen in the AHDB Forage for Knowledge results, and this in turn has helped stop the decline in volumes. Milk production is now running 0.9%* below the same week last year and 0.6% ahead of the AHDB milk production forecast. 17 August 2018
  • Milk production set to drop unless feed costs covered

    Many farmers have managed to maintain milk production levels through the hot, dry summer but only by using precious silage stocks and bought-in feed. That was the key message at AHDB’s recent Milk Forecasting Forum*. 15 August 2018
  • Cull cow market so far in 2018

    AHDB estimated cow slaughterings* have been running above last year throughout 2018, and in June the GB deadweight overall cow price reached an average of 265p/kg, the highest since July 2013. 15 August 2018
