I have heard it said that nervous cows tend to produce less milk. How accurate is this statement, and has any study found a direct relationship between animal personality and milk production in dairy cows?

Any stress will usually cause them to produce less milk. There's probably been studies, try google.

It makes sense because producing milk requires the cow to spend nutrients and energy and a stressed animal will naturally reserve those resources for its own survival.
