Milk production, Australia


On this page, you will find two charts showing monthly and triennal production of cow's milk (expressed in tonnes) in Australia over a given time period.
Australia is a major Player on world markets.

With its alternating pattern, the graph highlights that Australia's seasonal rhythms are the reverse of those in Europe. In Europe, the highest levels of production are reached from April to June, the exact period when Australia's production levels drop to their lowest.

The table below gives us the corresponding numerical values and their variation percentages.
