How European dairy farmers see different policy options

The European Dairy Farmers Club (an association of approximately 150 dairy farmers from 10 EU countries) is presented, and the positions of its members reported and discussed with particular reference to EU milk marketing policy and milk production quotas. The following are also examined: comparisons of milk production costs in different countries; the association's 1997 conference in De Haan, Belgium; investment in milk production; and market competition in the European dairy industry.
