In 1988/89 there were approx. 36 500 dairy farms, 74% of which were in Quebec and Ontario. Although the number of farms has gradually decreased over the last 20 yr, the annual vol. of milk produced has remained relatively static. In 1988 there were approx. 1 449 100 cows with an av. milk yield of 6872 litres/cow.
