GB production peaks on 19 May

Published 5 June 18

The latest daily deliveries data (up to the 26 May) shows that GB milk production peaked on 19 May with a seven-day rolling average production of 36.6 million litres. Actual figures put the peak as between 17-20 May depending on how you account for every other day collection. As previously noted, by 19 May overall production was running 0.2% behind last year, having caught up from being 2% behind for much of April.

Although this peak was on the late side, it was not as late as the peaks recorded in 2010 and 2012.
