Cows supply the great bulk of milk and nearly all of the milk produced in the United States. Cows mainly bred for milk for human consumption are kept and milked on dairy farms throughout the United States and account for about 1/10th of all cattle raised. Milk production per cow had increased steadily after World War II, noteworthy since the 1960s when advanced production technologies began to be used by dairy: runners. Milk is produced in a relatively uniform seasonal pattern in the United States. According to Renub Research, the United States Dairy Market is expected to reach 52 Billion Pound by the end of 2026.
