According to provisional estimates released by the European Commission, the European Union (EU) produced 27.3 billion pounds of milk in January among its 28 member countries. This was down 2.3 percent (641 million pounds) from the prior year.
EU milk production update
The most significant declines occurred in Germany and France, the top two largest milk-producing countries in the EU. January milk production in Germany and France declined 251 million and 278 million pounds, respectively. The United Kingdom also experienced a significant decline from the prior year, with milk production down 102 million pounds.
While 21 out of the 28 member countries experienced year-over-year declines, milk production strengthened across some countries, including Poland, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic. Together, these regions contributed an additional 119 million pounds of milk in January, offsetting some losses.
