Dairy farmers from across Europe are being encouraged to take part in an online survey to determine the level of interest in a supply control initiative, ultimately aimed at increasing milk prices.

The survey is being taken forward by Holstein NI, in conjunction with Holstein UK and Fair Price Farming NI. Together, they continue to press the case for the European dairy industry to adopt a voluntary milk supply arrangement as proposed by the European Commission, which would allow co-ops to plan and effectively regulate milk production over a six-month period.
