Israelis drank an average of 875 cups, equaling 175 liters, of milk per person in 2006, according to a report by the Agriculture Ministry. Over the five years leading up to 2006, the amount of milk (including yogurts and cheeses) consumed by Israelis had declined annually, but last year it rose 6.5 percent, for a net gain of 4.6% after factoring in a 1.8% growth in the country's population. Israel's cows are able to produce an average of 11,300 kilograms of milk per year, due to the country's advanced agricultural technology, representing a rise of 200 kilograms from 2005, and 1,000 kilograms above the level of 10 years ago, the ministry said.
