We have different list when we talk about the milk produced by the cow and the milk produced by the buffalo. Here in this very list we are taking about the milk and the milk products. And so we have listed countries according to it. Here goes the list.
10. United Kingdom
This very list which gives us the idea about the highest milk producing country in this world starts with a country whose name happens to be United Kingdom and it has been placed at the number tenth spot. The annual milk production of United Kingdom happens to be 13,237 106 kg/y and so the amount of milk products which are manufactured in this country is also quite high. Each passing year we are experiencing a gradual rise in the milk production in United Kingdom and this is a very nice step so as to establish United Kingdom as one of the major milk as well as the milk products producer in the whole world.
9. New Zealand
Dairy farming has always been one of the most important as well as the proud agricultural tradition of New Zealand. In this very list we have placed New Zealand at the number ninth place. The total milk production in New Zealand is 15,217 106 kg/y. This business started in New Zealand in the year 1846 when the European migrated to that country. Dairy Co-operative has always been one of those businesses which have been given the top most priority in this country and when we look at the figure of the milk produced by this country, it becomes very clear. At the moment there are around 12 co-operatives in New Zealand and there is also very large quantity of milk products produced in this country.
The second place in this very list belongs to the France. France is located in the western part of Europe continent. The milk production of this country is close to 24,218 106 kg/y which are quite high when we compare with the rest of the counties in this list. The dairy co-operative sector is very strong in this country and so there is such a large production of milk and milk products in France. With rapid growth in the dairy co-operative sector in France, in days to come the milk production in France will increase even more.
The country which is at the number seventh place in this list is Brazil. There is a very large scope for the co-operative business in Brazil and so each year we have been watching the rise in the dairy production of Brazil. Not only in producing milk but also the milk products, Brazil has been a top producer. The milk production in Brazil is estimated to be around 27,726 106 kg/y. Although the milk production is very much large in Brazil but then also the prices of these have been so much high at times in the Brazilian market because of the fact that there is no scope to store the milk in Brazil. Mainly it is the southern parts of the Brazil who are mostly involved in milk production.
The next country that we have in this list is named as Germany. Germany has managed to grab the sixth place in this list which has the top ten such countries which are highest milk product producers in the whole world. Each year the milk production in Germany is around 28,691 106 kg/y. Since the last decade there has been a very huge emphasis on the dairy sector of this country and so the production has risen to such a high level. In turn the amount of milk products which is produced by Germany has also increased.
Russia is the country that we have at the number fifth place in this list which clearly depicts the nations which are top most in milk products production in the whole world. With the last year data that we have it has been reported that Russia produces a whopping 32,562 106 kg/y of milk every year. Just because the milk production is so very high in this country so the dairy products which are produced using this milk are also done in large quantity.
The next country about whom we will be taking here is Pakistan. This country has been place at the number fourth place in this very list. Annually the total production of milk from Pakistan is close to 34,362 106 kg/y. There has been a steep rise in the dairy farming seen in this country and over the years many people have established themselves in this business. Pakistan is one of those Asian nations which are a large producer of milk products, thanks to the enormous amount of milk they produce.
There was a time when China was counted among the countries which were having the lowest milk consumption in the whole world but gradually this percentage has improved and today China lies at the number third place in the list of the top ten such countries that produces the highest milk products in the whole world. Over the years not only the milk production has increased which can be very clear from the fact that each year China has the production of 40,553 106 kg/y of milk.

The top most county that we have in this list is India. In India each year the total production of milk is estimated to be around 110,040 106 kg/y which are way higher than any other country in the whole world.
