IFCN Combined World Milk Price Indicator
Building on the Dairy Conference “Next generation farming & farmers”, we would like to open the topic to the public and to extend the discussion: Emerging markets have growing demand for dairy and therefore need to produce more, since many of the exporting countries see stalling production due to environmental pressure and rising costs.
IFCN World Dairy Map 2022 is aimed equally at dairy analysts – juniors and seniors, students and professors, milk experts and amateurs.
Big announcement! 20 Years of IFCN Supporter Conference. Our annual network meeting will take place this year in Netanya, Israel.
Let‘s reflect on the key drivers of dairy farming and dairy farmers. About policies to support young farmers, decision factors and expectations of the next generation, succession models and legislation, as well as general criteria for the future design of dairy farms.
With an increase of 2.9% compared to the previous year, milk production in 2021 remained at the level of recent years. However, a shift could be observed, i.e. typical net importing countries in particular contributed to the overall growth rather than the major milk exporters.
The hybrid event took place with more than 300 participants (live and online) from 4-6 September in Netanya, Israel.
It is time to refresh the IFCN Products and services list for 2023. As usual, we have updated the new IFCN Product list 2023 for your review. It’s been designed in a way that all main benefits, key features and technical details of each service are covered in 1 page.
