EU: Milk production forecast to be up on year in 2015 and 2016

The US agricultural attaché forecasts milk production in the EU-28 to rise by 1% to 152.5 mln t in 2015 from last year’s 150.9 mln t due to higher cow inventories of 23.6 (Jan. 2014: 23.5) mln head, as of Jan. 2015, and the abolishment of the milk quota system. For 2016, a further increase in m milk production to 153.4 mln t is expected. Total domestic consumption in 2016 is projected at 152.7 (2015: 151.8; 2014: 150.3) mln t.
