US shaves fraction off 2015 milk production forecast

Published 11 March 15

The USDA has marginally reduced its 2015 US milk production forecast to 211.1 billion pounds, down around 0.2% from last month’s forecast. The revision is the result of slower than expected growth in milk yield per cow. However, production this year is still predicted to be almost 2.5% higher than in 2014.
