The end of a strong milk year

Published 15 April 16

UK milk production totalled an estimated 14,833m litres (14,794m litres taking out 29Feb) for the 2015/16 milk year, up 3% on the previous year.

Although milk production fell below last year’s levels around March, it follows parallel to 2014/15 at around 1% lower. With current poor field conditions for many and low milk prices, production may well continue to trend below the previous years’ levels over the coming months.
