IFCN Combined World Milk Price Indicator
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.
IFCN World Dairy Map 2021 is aimed equally at dairy analysts – juniors and seniors, students and professors, milk experts and amateurs.
Following the spike in inflation, global events are unfolding that put the world as we know it into question. IFCN would like to explore if dairy is indeed facing a new reality. As both the milk price and farm input costs continue to soar, how can the impact on dairy farm economics be measured?
We invite you to join us at the 2021 IFCN Supporter Conference “Digital Dairy: How to design the future dairy world?” on 15th of September 2021. Explore together with us how digitalization can solve the main challenges of dairy industry.
This year’s IFCN Dairy Conference focused on the next generation of dairy farmers and dairy farming systems. IFCN’s first hybrid event recorded over 500 registrations and brought people from the dairy sector together in Kiel, Germany.
Under current dairy market conditions, a shrinking global milk supply is meeting steadily increasing demand, and farm profitability is under increasing pressure with milk and feed prices at unprecedented levels.
The war in Ukraine is bringing suffering to the lives of the country’s people with its destructive effects. The political and economic impact is not a priority in such a situation. Nevertheless, at IFCN we have been analyzing what the consequences could be, focusing on the dairy sector.
