What is DairyCo?
DairyCo is a levy-funded, not-for-profit organisation working on behalf of Britain's dairy farmers. Our remit is to solve 'market failure' in the dairy industry - to tackle issues not currently being dealt with sufficiently to meet the needs of the industry. We provide products and services to improve the sustainability of British dairy farming. We do this by providing independent, evidence-based information to British dairy farmers on:
- Feed and forage
- Genetic improvement
- Animal fertility, health and welfare
- Business skills and market intelligence
Leading to a positive image of dairy farming with the public. You can read more about how we engage with consumers here.
DairyCo is funded entirely by milk producers, via a statutory levy on all milk sold off-farm, at the rate of 0.06p per litre.
