Adjusted for butterfat at 3.89% this increases to 11.5bn litres, more than 100m litres short of the Charles Holt/Farmers Weekly quota profile.

This represents a shortfall of over 250m litres so far this quota year.

Charles Holt of the Farm Consultancy Group said the 100m litre shortfall for the month was “quite unprecedented”.

“It’s already possible to say that our chances of reaching quota this year are negligible.”
