Most states see milk production growth

Milk production during November again showed month over month growth as producers keep adding productive cows.

USDA says production in the U.S. was up three percent compared last year at 18 billion pounds with production per cow up 43 pounds from last year. 

The herd size was up 62,000 head on the year and 12,000 from last month.

Michigan continues to have the most productive cows in the nation. Florida and Vermont had the largest decrease in milk production while South Dakota was up more than 13 percent, followed by Indiana, up nearly 11 percent.
