AbstractDairy farming generated more than $3.9 billion in farm sales in 1997. Dairy farming is one of Canadas most important agricultural activities, ranking first in total farm sales in Quebec, Ontario, and Nova Scotia in 1997. Most of the dairy farms in Canada are in Quebec (37%) and Ontario (33%). In 1996 there were 30 900 farms reporting over 1.2 million dairy cows, a dramatic drop since 1971, when approximately 145 000 farms reported 2.3 million dairy cows. Although the number of cows has steadily declined, milk production has continued to climb. In the 1996 to 1997 dairy year, approximately 77.5 million hectolitres of milk were produced in Canada.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The map was originally published online in the Atlas of Canada, 6th Edition as an interactive digital map derived from a shapefile and mapped online using MapServer, a platform for publishing spatial data to the web. In order to preserve the geographical content of this Edition during its publication from 1999 to 2009 all the maps have been converted from their online interactive form to a raster and made available in PDF and JPEG.
