USDA Dairy Market Overview Jul 3/03 - EASTERN EUROPESunday, Jul 6, 2003
EASTERN EUROPE: Milk production in Eastern Europe is reported to be declining seasonally. In Poland, milk production reports indicate that production this season is basically in line with last year, but for other countries such as Russia, Ukraine, and Baltics, milk output is lagging last year. Some sales activity has been reported out of this region, but not at the level of previous years. Stocks are available for buyer interest. As in Western Europe, Eastern European casein production is lighter.
