CEJA Vice-Presidents Alan Jagoe and Matthias Daun, young dairy farmers themselves, attended the European Commission’s Milk Market Observatory’s first meeting of its Economic Board on 27 May 2014 in Brussels, Belgium in order to discuss developments on the milk market. European young farmers need as much information as possible about the market in order to improve the efficiency of their production before a potential up scaling of this after the abolition of dairy quotas in 2015. The CEJA Vice-Presidents applauded the European Commission for the initiative at this first meeting, adding that it was “crucial” that CEJA is represented in these important discussions.
The Economic Board brings together experts from across the dairy supply chain, including producers, processors and retailers so as to stay informed about the latest market data available and to exchange views on related developments on the ground. Mr Jagoe and Mr Daun will both attend the next meeting in their capacity as dairy production experts and CEJA representatives in two months’ time.
