The managing director said milk production fell from 28 million liters in 2018 to 21 million liters in 2019.
"Milk production is decreasing in most dairy producing regions because of unaffordable feed costs," Ling said. "Farmers are selling some of their milk cows and this is affecting the supply of raw milk." ■
