Across the Pond: A Look At European Dairy Production

European milk production declined 1.4% year-over-year in June as heat waves weighed on cow comfort and component levels. Though temperatures are expected to ease in the coming months, milk flows will remain under pressure amid tightening environmental regulations. In the latest episode of The Dairy Download, we speak with two guests keeping an eye on Europe’s output obstacles.

First up is Jukka Likitalo, Secretary General with Eucolait. He tells us how the European Commission’s Farm to Fork Strategy is impacting the region’s production. He also gives insight on other factors crimping output, from structural issues to supply chain and labor challenges.

Next, we talk with Paula O’Dwyer, Senior Business Intelligence Manager for Glanbia Ireland. She sheds light on trends in Irish milk production and the broader European market. And she discusses the impact of higher prices on the region’s dairy demand.
