The Bulgarian dairy industry faced a lot of problems in 2021, according to the GAIN Report.


A recent USDA GAIN report, said that the Bulgarian dairy industry faced a lot of problems in the marketing year 2021 with the national dairy herd, cow milk production and collection, and contracting for processing. The number of dairy farms and stocks went down because the summer was dry and hot, feed grain prices went up, inflation pressure (especially in the energy sector), and there weren’t enough people to work on the farms. As bigger, more efficient dairy operations took over, consolidation and restructuring of the industry kept going. In 2022, the process moved along even faster because it was another hot and dry summer, feed prices went through the roof, inflation reached almost 20%, and people bought less dairy products because they cost more.
