About the forum

Building on the Dairy Conference “Next generation farming & farmers”, we would like to open the topic to the public and to extend the discussion: Emerging markets have growing demand for dairy and therefore need to produce more, since many of the exporting countries see stalling production due to environmental pressure and rising costs.
