GB milk production update: week ended 11 May

Published 21 May 19

GB milk deliveries stayed above 37m litres per day on average in the week ending 11 May 2019, but fell from last week.  The slow down in average daily deliveries suggests we have moved past the peak. The highest daily volume was recorded on the 23 April at 37.94 million litres/day, earlier than previous years.

Although a drop was recorded in average daily deliveries, they have remained above the 37 million litres/day mark since the middle of April. The seasonal upswing in grass growth, which has been roughly in line with the 5-year average, appears to be keeping yields strong.
