This article reports on the expected milk yield in Great Britain as of April 11, 2003. Fewer cows were being milked and although yields would rise as cows housed on poor quality silage were turned to grass. But ADAS Dairy Group business manager, Ian Powell disagreed and said "This is quite a steep shift in production. There is now the potential to produce a spring flush not terribly different to last spring." Independent consultant Mike Bessey said the weather would play a key role in determining milk output, but expected spot milk prices to remain above 18p/litre, due to a stronger k, higher intervention prices, and the help of United Milk's PLC's processing factory.
