Quota Fears Prompt Spanish Farmer Advice

04 November 2014

SPAIN – Curbing diets and turning animals to slaughter are among measures that could minimise milk quota excess, Spanish dairy farmers are being told.

The message comes from the Ministry of Agriculture’s ‘strict commitment’ to track production until quota abolition in April next year.

National output lifted six per cent in August, the Ministry announced on Friday.

Prices have weakened as a result, making prices at 33.79 euros per 100 kilograms lower than a year earlier for the first time in 2014.

National output will exceed quota by between 1.45 and 2.9 per cent, current projections forecast.

Increased awareness of production levels is required, according to the Ministry.
