European Dairy Market Summary

MADISON - Jul 23/15 - SNS -- Dairy market conditions in western and eastern Europe were reviewed in the latest report on the sector released by the USDA today.

An intense heat wave that covered much of Europe's major dairy producing
regions has lowered milk deliveries in most of the regions in Europe. Drought
conditions are developing in some areas of France which is likely to affect
forages for dairy herds. Current forecasts indicate the return of high
temperatures is likely as another heat wave is in the forecast in the
upcoming week. Preliminary data indicates EU 28 milk production is above year
ago levels, with above average increases in Ireland and the Netherlands.
Preliminary milk production estimates for May indicate Poland's production is
above year ago levels. Eastern EU milk production was adversely affected by
the recent heat wave that covered most of the continent.
