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

The dairy industry today looks very different from the way it did just 30 years ago.

Milk production in the U.S. has increased over that time frame by a whopping 50 percent — yet the total number of dairy farms has fallen by three-quarters.

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

The above graphic uses data from the USDA to chart the American dairy industry 's rapid consolidation between 1992 and 2017.
