While total milk production and number of dairy cows declined significantly in many states over the last 5 years, Michigan is headed in the other direction. Michigan’s total milk production increased 19% and the state’s dairy herd increased from 302,000 to 335,000 cows between 2003 and 2007. Quite remarkably, over the same time period milk production per cow increased substantially (Michigan Ag Statistics). Michigan Dairy Farming: Progressive and Resilient.
