MegaMilk: Charting Consolidation in the U.S. Dairy Industry #infographic

Today's dairy industry looks very different from the way it did 30 years ago.

Milk production in the U.S. has risen by a whopping 50 per cent during that time frame — and the overall number of dairy farms has fallen by three-quarters.

Today smaller and larger farms are holding the lion's share of all U.S. milk cow inventories. Though they have the potential to produce more competitively priced dairy products and give customers more value, it causes financial destruction to small farmers.

The above graphic uses USDA data to charts the rapid development of the American dairy industry between 1992 and 2017.
