State's Milk Production
Sets August Record
Milk production on Wisconsin farms
in August of 1,363 million pounds was
the highest on record for the month.
The increase over a year ago in milk
production resulted from a greater
production per cow since the number
of milk cows changed little from Au-
gust last year.
In addition to Wisconsin, new rec-
ords in August milk production were
reported for New York, Pennsylvania,
Maryland, Virginia, Idaho, and Cali-
fornia, New lows in production were
reported for Illinois, Montana, and
Wyoming. For the nation as a whole,
milk production on farms in August is
estimated at 10,263 million pounds or
nearly 3 percent more than a year
ago.
So far this year, January through
August, milk production on Wisconsin
farms shows only a slight increase
over a year ago while production for
the nation is up 1 percent from the
first eight months of last year.
Milk production on Wisconsin farms
in August was at a record level al-
though pasture conditions during the
month were poor with an average of
71 percent of normal compared with
84 percent last year. Farmers report
feeding more grains and concentrates
this summer than a year ago. While
feed costs are a little higher than a
year ago, the increased milk prices
have resulted in a favorable milk-feed
price ratio for producers.
State's Egg Production
Below August Last Year
Wisconsin farm flocks produced 146
million eggs in August and 1,301 mil-
lion during the first eight months of
this year. The number of layers in the
state's farm flocks was 2 percent be-
