Milk production continues to increase with May numbers up more than four percent on the year, the largest month to month increase for 2021.

USDA says production in the U.S. for the month totaled nearly 20 billion pounds with production per cow up 61 pounds from last year.

The herd size was up 145,000 head on the year and 5,000 from last month.

South Dakota production grew by more than 14 percent followed by Indiana, up more than 12 percent. and Texas was up nearly 11 percent.  Virginia and Arizona were the only two states to report declining production. Michigan remains the leader in per cow output.

Last month, 14 of our dairy farms in Maine, as well as dozens of dairy farms across northern New England, got an unexpected and disappointing notice from Danone of North America saying that they were discontinuing their contracts with our organic dairy farmers in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and elsewhere.
