The latest data for the dairy milk production in shows the 2012-13 season maintaining its record volume output pace.
DCANZ is reporting that November 2012 milk production was 2,848,000 tonnes, a rise of 7.7% over the 1,067,000 tonnes produced in November 2011.
For the full calendar year to November 2012, 20,354,000 tonnes of milk were produced, and that was 9.3% ahead of the 18,627,000 tonnes in the previous equivalent year.
The milksolids equivalent in November was 234,207 tonnes, up 8.1%. Milksolids are the sum of the total milk protein and fat.
The cold spells and heavy rains in the South have not slowed the milk flow, and another strong result is expected for December.
