Milk production falters in North Rhine-Westphalia

The economically difficult situation in the last two years in Germany has left a particularly clear impression in North Rhine-Westphalia.

While the Federal Statistical Office reports 2.7% fewer milk producers in all Germany, the structural change on the producer side in North-Rhine Westphalia is drastic 8% less dairy farmers compared to the previous year. But there is optimism among those who continue.

“Milk production must be more dialogue-oriented,” says Hans Stöcker, chairman of the organisation Milch NRW.

“As a family business specialising in milk production we are looking forward to the future, because the combination of economy, sustainability and animal welfare has been with us for generations.”
