Nick Peksa examines trends in the European dairy market, on the back of what has been an unpredictable couple of years, weather wise. This article first appeared in ESM Issue 4 2019.
During the recent school half-term, I volunteered to go on a camping trip with my youngest son. The aim was to go mountain biking in Wales, however, the rain arrived, so we decided to pack up and try to avoid it.
We headed north, through England and into the highlands of Scotland. The one thing that was consistent on the entire trip was the lush and verdant pasture that flanked the roads – a stark contrast to the arid grasslands of 2018. What a great time to be a dairy cow!
