The Dairy Year in Review Part 2

Continuing the second in the two-part dairy year in review, on this week’s episode of The Dairy Edge Podcast, Emma-Louise Coffey is joined by Teagasc Dairy Advisors Jim Moyles, Ciara O’Shea and Seamie Nolan.

The panel gave a good indication of where profitability should lie for 2020, with milk price and costs remaining steady, despite concerns of a signification drop in milk price earlier in the year.

Covid-19 didn’t go without mention. The panel explained that day-to-day operations were relatively unaffected in 2020 and to the credit of the co-ops all milk continued to be collected and processed during the height of the first lockdown which coincided with peak milk production.

The panel commended farmers for their ability to embrace and adapt to discussion groups online but are hopeful and look forward to a return to the normal format in 2021.
