The end of milk quota will bring a new dynamic in dairy industry. How will milk production develop worldwide, which regions will grow in production capacity and what are the limiting factors concerning environmental issues and emissions? How will large dairy farms be managed, where will our feedstuffs be produced and how will milk and feed price evolve?
With a quota-free era starting soon, seven experts from the Netherlands and abroad will present their vision on opportunities and threats for future dairy production, on Thursday 16 October 2014 in Wageningen, The Netherlands.
Representatives from feed, feed additive and dairy industry, knowledge institutes and governmental organizations as well as veterinarians, students and others were invited to attend the 2014 symposium.
