Dairy systems in the European regions of the Atlantic area

Abstract : The eleven regions participating in the european project “Green Dairy” (the project " Green Dairy » aims at comparing the environmental impact of the systems milkmen of the European Atlantic Space) are responsible for about a quarter of the dairy production of the EU-15. Although situated in the same climatic zone under oceanic influence, the diversity of the physical environment, the structures and the production systems remains considerable. To define this internal and external regional diversity and to place the groups of pilot farms of the " Green Dairy” project in perspective, a processing of individual data from the European FADN for the years 1999 to 2003 was realized. This communication is structured around three sections : 1) some methodological elements necessary for the understanding of the results; 2) the technical characteristics notably the dynamics of the structures, the productivity of the work and the feeding systems ; 3) the production costs and economic results of the farms as well as the regional dairy dynamic. The final discussion will concern the main assets and constraints of the systems and regions studied compared with the challenge of the future: the probable end of milk quota, a more open European and World market, the increase of the price of energy and more restrictive environmental regulations.
