Dairy production is an important economic activity in Atlantic Area. With expanding dairy production, among world leaders, faces market volatility and climatic hazards and the need for more efficient use of natural resources to improve competitiveness.
From Scotland to Azores, The Dairy-4-Future project aims to increase the competitiveness, sustainability and resilience of dairy farms through the development of innovative and efficient dairy systems and increased cooperation between R&D stakeholders groups. This project will mainly focus on propagating dairy systems blueprints able to withstand an increased volatility in milk prices and climatic hazards, preserving natural resources and mitigating climate change while offering social performances in line with consumer demands, and better added value.
The consortium will:
(i) jointly analyze economic, societal and environmental metrics to identify innovative and more efficient dairy systems;
(ii) evaluate ecosystem services offered by dairy production (employment, biodiversity, landscape…);
(iii) identify, study and disseminate on success stories in the value chain (farmers, dairy industry);
(iv) share and test innovations and innovative dairy systems;
(v) propose recommendations and incentive measures for regional policies;
(vi) prepare a framework for an increased cooperation between stakeholders.
