This paper discusses the general dairy farming situation in Finland. Over 90% of milk produced is handled by co-operatives. Milk production is expected to decrease in the future, which may cause seasonal supply problems. Prices are based on amount, protein content and fat content of milk. The methylene blue reductase test is no longer valid due to widespread chilling of milk in farm tanks. There has been an increase in staff education in many dairies.
