MILK PRODUCTION ON FARMS AND
STATISTICS OF DAIRY PLANT PRODUCTS, 1958 i/

SUMMARY

Milk cows on farms in the United States produced an estimated 125,236
million pounds of milk in 1958, or approximately one-half percent less than in
1957. This was the first decline in annual output after 5 years of increases
when milk production jumped from 114,671 million pounds in 1952 to the record
high of 125,939 million pounds in 1957. Total output decreased from 1957 due
to a record low number of milk cows more than offsetting a record high amount
of milk produced per cow. In 1958, milk production per milk cow averaged 6,330
pounds. This exceeded the 1957 former record high by 170 pounds, or approxi-
mately 3 percent. The average number of milk cows on farms in 1958 was 19,784
thousand head. This was the smallest number since annual estimates were started
in 1924. Except for 1953, numbers have decreased each successive year since
the record high of 25.6 million head in 1944.

For the third consecutive year, total cheese output reached a new high,
resulting from high records in brick and Munster, cream, and Italian varieties.
Both creamed cottage cheese and curd continued their upward spiral and 1958
production of creamed cottage cheese was more than 3 times the output of only
a dozen years ago. Total frozen dairy products, including Mellorine, were at
the highest levels of record. Ice cream was the highest, except for 1946.
Ice milk has risen each successive year for the past 14 years and the 1958
output was more than 13 times that of 1944. Mellorine, also, reached a new
peak in 1958 and was more than 3 times that of 1952. Evaporated whole milk
was the lowest since 1939. Total nonfat dry milk reached new record highs in
each of the past 6 successive years. The product made by the roller process
continued to decline, but was more than offset by gains in the spray processed
product.

The average of buying prices paid by dealers for fluid use milk through-
out the United States in 1958 was off 1 percent from 1957. Single quart prices
for the most common grade milk delivered to homes in 25 major markets, however,
averaged 2 percent more than a year earlier -- a record annual average for
the 25-city series. The average of daily whole milk sales in 44 markets during
1958 was about the same as in 1957. The 44 markets include all those under
Federal Orders having no significant out-of-area sales. Sales of skim milk
products for the 44 markets in 1958 were more than 3 percent above the 1957
total. Average daily milk and cream mixture (half-and-half in most markets)
sales in 1958 for 43 markets were 2 percent above the annual average a year
earlier. Fluid cream sales, however, were down 7 percent. Average daily
whole milk receipts from producers in 64 Federal Order markets during 1958
were more than 3 percent above a year earlier. The number of producers ship-
ping to these markets was down 3 percent, but this was more than offset by
a 7-percent increase in receipts per producer.

I/ This report was prepared in the Dairy Statistics Branch under the
direction of I. E. Wissinger, Chief, and agricultural statisticians W.D. aori.ath
L. W. Haynes, L. W. Wallin, and H. M. Walters.

MILK COWS AND MILK PRODUCTION ON FARMS, 1958


Milk cows on farms in the United States produced an estimated 125,236
million pounds of milk in 1958. This was 703 million pounds less than the
revised total of 125,939 million pounds produced in 1957. This was the first
decline in annual output since successive declines in 1951 and 1952, and
follows five years of increases when U. S. milk production jumped from 114,671
million pounds in 1952 to last year's record outturn of 125,939 million pounds.
In 1958, total output declined from a year earlier as the decrease in the
number of milk cows more than offset the record high amount of milk produced
per cow. Total production in 1958 was sufficient to provide 719 pounds of milk
per capital in the United States -- the lowest since estimates started in 1924.

Total milk production increased about 1 percent from 1957 in both the North
Atlantic and East North Central regions, but decreased in other parts of the
country. Output was down only slightly in the West, but off 2 percent in both
the West North Central and South Atlantic and 3 percent in the South Central
States. Milk production in 1958 was down from the previous year in 33 States.
The other 15 States recorded upturns in production, with 7 States including
Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania, having all-time high annual output.

Milk production per cow averaged 6,330 pounds, or 240 pounds of milkfat in
1958. This exceeded the 1957 former record high annual rate of milk produced
per cow by 170 pounds, or approximately 3 percent. Annual output per milk cow
passed the 6,000-pound level for the first time in 1956, and has increased over
5 percent in the past two years. Production per cow showed only small gains
from 1957 in the South Atlantic States and the West, but annual rates in other
regions showed increases that ranged up to 4 percent in both the North Atlantic
and East North Central. In the West North Central region, rate of milk flow
was up 3 percent while in the South Central it rose 1 percent. Good dairy
management, concentration of milk cows in fewer and larger herds, more extensive
use of good bulls through artificial insemination programs, and heavy feeding
of concentrates have contributed to higher milk production per cow.

In 1958, the average number of milk cows on farms was 19,784 thousand head.
This was 3 percent less than in the previous year and the smallest number since
annual estimates were started in 1924. Except for 1953, numbers have decreased
each successive year since the record high of 25.6 million head in 1944. The
decline in milk cows from 1957 was the sharpest since the drop from 1947 to 1948.
The number of milk cows was less than in 1957 in all regions, ranging from less
than a 1 percent decrease in the West to about 5 percent in the South Central.
Milk cows were down 2 percent in the South Atlantic, 3 percent in both the North
Atlantic and East North Central, and 4 percent in the West North Central States.
Numbers were off from 1957 in 40 States.

Cows and heifers 2 years old and over kept for milk on U. S. farms totaled
21,606 thousand head on January 1, 1959, and reached the lowest number for the
date since 1921. This was a decrease of 3 percent from the previous January 1
and was about 8 percent below the 1948-57 average for the date. There were
5,309 thousand heifers 1 to 2 years old kept for milk on farms on January 1, 1959.
This was a slight gain from the same date a year earlier but was 5 percent less
than the January 1, 10-year average. Heifer calves under 1 year old kept for
milk showed a fractional increase from January 1, 1958, when at that time the
total for the entire country was the lowest for the date since 1938.

IANUFACTUrLD DAIRY PRODUCTS, 1958


Several new all-time high production records were established by nanu-
facturing dairy plants during 1958. Total cheese production reached a new
high, as a result of record high output of brick and Munfster, cream, and
Italian varieties. Ice cream production showed the highest production of
record, except for 1946, while the output of both ice milk and Mellorine
reached new highs. Both cottage cheese curd and crPeaed cottage cheese
achieved new high records, and total nonfat dry milk production continued
its climb to greater heights.
Creamery butter production for 1958 was estimated at 1,386,000,000
pounds, down 2 percent from the preceding year and at the lowest level
since 1955. Thile total cheese production for 1958 rose only fractionally
from 1957, the rise was sufficient to establish a new record high annual
output. American cheese production declined 2 percent from 1957 to 1958,
but the output of the total mircellan.ous or foreign-types of cheese gained
8 percent from the preceding year to reach a new all-time high. gainss from
the preceding year in the individual types of cheese were: SwisE, 7 percent;
brick and Munster combined, 6 percent; cream cheese, 7 percent; Neufchatel,
13 percent; Italian, 11 percent; and blue mold, 1 percent. The only variety
showing a decline was Limburger, which continued its gradual descent to new
low levels. Cottage cheese production, both the curd and creamed, advanced
to new record high levels. Cottage cheese curd production for 1958 totaled
555,130,000 pounds, a gain of 1 percent from the preceding year, while creamed
cottage cheese production was estimated at 707,610,000 pounds, an increase of
2 percent from 1957.
The year 1958 was another record breaker for the frozen dairy products
industry. Ice cream production, at 663,210,000 gallons, was 2 percent larger
than that of 1957, and the highest of record, except for the unusual postwar
year of 1946. The combined production of ice cream and related frozen products
for 1958, however, resulted in a banner year for the industry. For the
fourteenth consecutive year, ice milk production continued its upward spiral
to a new high. Production in 1958 totaled 110,075,000 gallons, a gain of 2
percent from the preceding year. Sherbet production, at 36,920,000 gallons
for 1958, rose fractionally from the preceding year to reach the highest
level since 1955. Production of "lielorine-t',e" frozen desserts registered
another sharp gain after it appeared that the rate of gain of this item was
leveling off somewhat. At 39,850,000 gallons in 1958, estimates of Mellorine
production were 16 percent higher than the preceding year's output.
Evaporated milk production for 1.958 was 2,295,600,000 pounds, smallest
annual output since 1939, and 6 percent less than that of 1957. Canned
condensed whole milk totaled 55,595,000 pounds during 1958, lowest level
since 1955, and down 7 percent from the preceding year. Total nonfat dry
milk production was 1,689,050,000 pounds, a new all-time high, and a gain
of 1 percent from 1957. Output of dry butterrilk, at 72,100,000 pounds,
was the largest since 194l, and 3 percent rore than in 1957. Dry whole
milk production including sweetened dry whole milk was 85,500,000 pounds.
This was the lowest production level since 19h2, ;nd was 22 percent less
than that of 1957.

Prices were down frc: the preceding year in all regions except the South
Atlantic, where the average was up 3 cents per hundredweight. Regional
annual average buying prices of milk for fluid use in 1958 varied from $4.24
per hundredweight in the West North Central to $6.27 in the South Atlantic.
On a seasonal basis, United States monthly buying prices in 1958 varied
from a low of $5.09 in June to a high of 45.60 in January--a spread of 51
cents per hundredweight, which is about the 5-year average range between
the low and high months.

Single quart prices of the most common grade milk delivered to homes
in 25 major markets throughout the United States averaged 25.4 cents per
quart during 1958 -- a record annual average for the 25-city series.
This was a gain of 0.6 cent per quart from the previous record high average
in 1957 and was 2.2 cents above the 1952-56 annual average. Decreases
from 1957 were reported only in Kansas City, Mo., and Seattle, Washington.
No change in the annual average price was shown in Indianapolis, Detroit,
Omaha, and Denver. Single quart prices in the other 19 cities, however,
were at record high levels.

Whole milk sales unchanged; skim milk and half and half slightly
higher; fluid cream lower in 1957

Average daily sales of fluid whole milk in h4 Federal Order markets
during 1958 were about the same as 1957. These 44 markets are all of the
markets having data segregated to exclude out-of-area sales. Twenty-two
of the 44 markets reported gains over 1957. Eleven markets were at
about the same level, but 11 showed lower sales. Sales of skim milk items
on an average daily basis were 3 percent higher in 1958 than in 1957.
In 27 markets, sales for the year were higher; in 17 markets sales were

I/ "Standard grade" is the grade commonly sold in each market. Grades vary between markets due to
differences in determining factors. The prices shown are the latest reported up to and including the
10th of the month.
2/ In markets having a service charge on the first unit at each single delivery location, the charge
has been divided between 2 quarts. Since the single quart concept used historically is based on every
day delivery, it is assumed that under every other day delivery the charge represents a two quart
purchase. Service charge effective: Minneapolis, all of the period shown orior to June 1957;
San Francisco, beginning March 1957; Los Angeles May 1956 through August 1958.
