‘Agrarheute’ says that the prices of rapeseed, soy, oats, hay and straw – all of which are used as food for cattle – have increased within the EU. Partially this is due to the weather having ruined harvest in the areas the EU usually gets them from, but partially it is also due to transporting these goods across the sea having become more expensive. That’s why European dairies and cattle farmers currently struggle.

‘Agrarheute’ says that now there is a law in Germany that says dairies now will have to pay for being allowed to produce milk that consists by 3,5% or more of fat – similar to the taxes on sugary products in the UK. One dairy Bayern MeG however refuses to pay as they don’t find this fair.

‘Agrarheute’ says that due to the drought in Australia many farmers don’t have enough food for all of their cattle. Thus to prevent them from starving to death or dying of thirst many farmers decide to slaughter some of their cattle so they may have a more humane death.

‘Agrarheute’ says that due to the drought in August – the grass and other food plants died – some German dairy-farmers who produce organic milk temporarily used conventionally-produced food for their cattle. They simply didn’t have anything else to feed to their livestock. The thing is they they produce for organic seals that forbid this.
