How much milk does a dairy cow produce?

You are here:

Depending on the breed, the average dairy cow in South Africa produces 4000–10 000 L of milk per lactation. This translates to 16 000–40 000 glasses (250 mL) of milk per year.

Many variables, such as feeding, genetic potential, the weather, the stage of production and the age of the cow, will affect the volume of milk produced.
