According to the results of January 2022, Ukraine produced 522.1 thousand tons of milk, which is 1.5% less than in January last year. At the same time, 243.3 thousand tons or 46.6% of all milk was produced by industrial farms and 278.8 thousand tons (53.4%) in households.
As of February 1, there are 1,552.7 thousand cows in Ukraine, which is 6.6% less than in February last year.
The share of extra grade in milk submitted for processing has increased to almost 40%. The industrial sector managed to keep the number of cows at the level of the previous year. The list of major importers of dairy products was led by Poland, Germany and the Netherlands.
Global demand for dairy products is rising fast, meaning milk production must grow fast as well. However, the dairy industry has a large carbon footprint so investing in productivity and resource efficiency is fundamental to mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions from increased milk production.
Much attention of the international community is focused on "greening" and global climate strategies. There are already very conflicting data on the impact of dairy farming on greenhouse gas emissions and the damage they cause. New global initiatives will definitely not bypass Ukraine.

Dear colleagues, we invite you to take part in the rating "Dairy Records of Ukraine", the results of which will be summed up during the XV International Dairy Congress, which will be held February 28 - March 1, 2022 in the "KyivExpoPlaza" (Amsterdam, 1, Berezivka , Kyiv region).
According to the results of 2021, milk processing enterprises received 3 million 197.8 thousand tons of milk, which is 8.9% less than in 2020. At the same time, the share of milk from industrial farms is 4.5 times higher than the volume of supplies from the homestead sector, and the extra grade in the structure of supplies surpassed last year's figures by 10%.
According to various estimates, 20 to 50% of productivity in dairy farming does not depend on technology or equipment on farms, but on management - that is, on how staff work. The issue of team motivation is important.
