Farmers Demand Liberal Dairy Policy to Spur Competition

26 July 2013

GERMANY – If competition and entrepreneurship are to be promoted, dairy policy must take more liberal forms, the German Farmers Association (DBV) has told senior EU politicians.

This is the mantra of a letter addressed to national and pan-European bureaucrats in charge of dairy policy.

The DBV has said that unilateral, anti-competitive regulations will burden farmers and add more costs to the executive.

They also warned against quota impositions and rules around manure storage.

Instead, German farmers expect a policy to encourage young businesses, drive growth and strengthen product orientation to the market.
