June milk production flat


Dairy farmers reeled in production gains and herd expansion during June after several months of low milk prices.

Milk production in the U.S. during the month totaled nearly 19 billion pounds with production per cow up only a pound from last year.

Ag economist Rob Fox with CoBank tells Brownfield any expansions seen in the first half have been a delayed response to last year’s record prices.

“I expect to see the opposite over the next 6 to 12 months,” he says.
