milk production


Looking at the future

The news that Danish dairy co-operative Arla is building a commercial dairy farm in Nigeria, where it will also train 1,000 farmers to help supply the giant nation with dairy products, is a good one. In a way, this is always what dairy is about. Feeding people nutritiously, at low cost, and giving them a livelihood.

Global milk output lower but prices up

After a very strong global milk production growth in 2020, Rabobank assumes that milk production will slow down significantly in 2021, however prospects for milk prices are better than expected at the beginning of the pandemic.

The country’s milk production in 2020 benefited from favourable weather and higher price expectations, but production is expected to generally decrease in coming years as the government tries to manage supply and decrease powdered milk stocks.
