What Does Brexit Mean for Dairy Farmers?

The UK voted to leave the EU yesterday, and reactions from farming bodies have been pouring in all day.

Chief Executive of Dairy UK, Dr Judith Bryans, said: "The UK dairy industry is adaptable, resilient and determined, with the skills and innovation to rise to the many challenges we encounter.

"Dairy UK will continue to liaise with the UK Government, devolved administrations and all relevant organisations to promote the interests of the UK dairy sector and help to steer our industry in the right direction.

"We have an outstanding UK industry producing world-class products and our people have the ambition and the determination to succeed."

Meanwhile, NFU Dairy Board Chairman Michael Oakes said: "The EU dairy market benefited from EU market support measures such as private storage aid for butter and skimmed milk powder and intervention buying. What will replace these measures now?

“Last September, the EU Commission found an extra €500million to support the EU dairy and pork sectors. We need to ask how the UK would have managed without this.”

Mr Oakes called for a transparent dairy market to build consumer trust, a strengthened code of conduct on milk contracts and food labelling, and support from the UK government on trade to make sure British dairy gets a fair deal.
