Wisconsin milk production up slightly
Wisconsin’s milk production for February was up slightly from last year. USDA’s state statistician Greg Bussler says the Dairy State’s production was 2.45 billion pounds last month. He says the state’s average number of cows in February was 1.27 million head, just like it was in January, but three thousand fewer than in February of 2022.
Production per cow increased ten pounds over last February, with each cow averaging 1,925 pounds of milk per month. That’s almost 224 gallons per cow every month or around seven and a half gallons a day.
