The average farmgate milk price is obtained by weighing, for each dell'EST Europa, the average farmgate milk price (source: MMO) against the quantities of milk delivered (source: Eurostat).
The average production per cow is obtained by dividing the tonnes of milk produced by the number of dairy cows.
