About the conference

Let us talk about the next generation of dairy farmers & farming

Our world is changing day by day, presenting us with new challenges in human, economic and technological terms. Let‘s build the future and discuss how the next generation will develop economically successful businesses: 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.

Why to focus on succession?

The lifecycle of a farm usually adapts to the lifecycle of a generation – as a result, knowledge and diversely managed family businesses are lost. But what is the difficulty of generational change in agriculture? Is about taxes, family relations, capital or is it about the confidence of the young generation?
