German Dairy Farmers Help Themselves

07 August 2009

GERMANY - The situation on the milk market and the slow reaction of politicians has been the reason the BDM has developed a draft to decrease the pressure on the market.

This draft adresses producers, dairy and politics to the same degree, reports the European Milk Board. It is a voluntarily obligating reduction of volume with financial compensation (FMS).

In the following days the producers, dairies and politicians will receive a letter that explains the contribution of each actor.

With the FMS each farm has the opportunity to reduce its quota by 10 per cent. In general this could lead to a reduction of 5 per cent in Germany.
