 April Milk Production up 0.3 Percent  

Milk production in the top 23 dairy states rose by 0.3 percent in April compared to the same month a year earlier, according to the latest “Milk Production” report released by the USDA. Across all 50 states, milk production increased by 0.2 percent.

Once again the Upper Midwest states posted healthy gains, with Wisconsin up 1.3 percent, Minnesota up 1.8 percent and Michigan up 1.3 percent.

California, the country’s No. 1 milk-producing state, reported yet another decline this month, dropping 0.2 percent.

Kansas has the greatest increase in year-to-year output as that state produced 248 million pounds of milk in April, up six percent from the same month last year.

The report is slightly bullish as total milk production ended slightly greater than expectations, says Dave Kurzawski, dairy analyst with FCStone in Chicago.
