Wisconsin Officially Sets New Milk Production Record in '20
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/09/2021

America's Dairyland stayed true to its name last year as the state set another record for total milk production, despite having less cows. The latest government figures from the USDA confirmed that Wisconsin farms produced 30.7 billion pounds of milk in 2020, just less than one-percent more than the previous record of 30.6 billion harvested in 2019.

Milk per cow also rose to an all-time high of 24,408 pounds, up 256 pounds from the year earlier.

The total number of milk cows at year's end was around 1.26 million head--approximately 2,000 less than the previous year.

As of January 1, there were 6,932 licensed milking herds in the state. That was 360 less than the same time in early 2020.
