USDA EASTERN EUROPE DAIRY MARKET SUMMARYSaturday, Nov 8, 2003
EASTERN EUROPE: Milk production continues to decline seasonally in Eastern Europe. This part of Europe is realizing typical declines for this time of the year, but also declines are occurring due to lighter than desired feed stocks. Many producers are already cutting into winter feed stocks which could cause problems later in the winter. Stocks of manufactured dairy products are often not at desired levels, thus international availability from this region appears to be lower for the upcoming winter months.
