Eucolait Calendar 2013
COLD WEATHER, HOT MARKETS?
No one is surprised when farmers complain about the weather. But when people with an office job do it must be serious. The coldest month of March in decades was such a serious event.
Supposedly spring will finally start in the second week of April. Whether this will also lead to a strong spring flush in milk production remains to be seen. Poor fodder quality due to last year’s cold and wet fall and slow grass growth due to the unseasonably cold weather across Europe are said to limit the potential for strong production increases in the near term. Everyone is looking at the second half of 2013 for first signs of milk production expansion. Given the poor performance of the second half of 2012, these gains are almost guaranteed but it will be wise to put them also in perspective.
