5 minutes ago they told us on the radio that farmers in the EU have had milk prices rises at farmgate of 30 - 60 % and that is why the international markets have softened meaning our own milk price received will drop again.






Due to the low US Dollar there is no chance of selling surplus milk on the world market...




funny.....
 they tell us here that because the US$ is high (currently 1A$ =[sign in to see URL] US$)we have to receive a price drop as noone will buy it at that price

No Foxleigh, the A$ is high in comparison to the US$:
In december you received [sign in to see URL] to [sign in to see URL] US$ per 1 A$

Now you receive about [sign in to see URL] US$ per 1 A$.

Thus the value of the US$ dropped.

The US dollar is going into the crapper... Either way, this same type of strike should be done here in the states. Input costs, and the fact the middle man is making a killing.. Organic market is even worse. Did some calculating. The US farmer is getting paid with a store price at $4 gallon, roughly [sign in to see URL] a gallon. The dairy farmer should be getting [sign in to see URL] a gallon equiv, which would be $26/cwt..

There is only one way to get an higher milk price: asking for higher price!

Give the milk directly to consumers for free or at costs or feed animals with it, or just throw it and ASK [sign in to see URL] €/lt for each day of protest, when you have 10/15 % increase of current price than you can sign the contract.

Funny you mention that, this is why here in the states, the government and interstate milk shippers do not like raw milk. 1: The government cant collect taxes off of it. 2: This means money that isn't in the pockets of those making money off of the farmer, which are the co-ops etc. Contrary to beleif it isn't health safety, its the all "mighty" dollar, or in your guys case, euro/lb etc.

Re: Germany's dairy farmers on strike!


Jeff, we live in a world of red tape and legality. The key word is liability. Milk is traceable and tested along the way so that if anything untoward crops up, it can be isloated and someone can take the blame. The government wishes to see that it has done its bit for public health. The shop doesn't want product that will have gone off before the customer uses half of it, and both they and processors need to, in the event of a claim, be able to confirm that the product was processed and packed to accepted industry standards. Perhaps you should see pasturisation as a means of improving the product you make for the public.
